Picture of the Week / Portugal

Fortaleza Sagres (Portugal) – 38/16

Fortaleza Sagres

A slightly moody picture this Monday. Slightly moody like I am and slightly moody like the weather is today. That’s about the only moodiness though – the picture brings back the memories of a nice holiday at the Algarve (Portugal) and to be honest, I like the moodiness and colour combination.

The Fortaleza Sagres is a good drive away from the main touristic cities on the Portuguese south-coast but surrounded by beautiful landscape and definitely worth a visit. Not far from the Fortaleza is also the most western light house on the European Mainland – Farol Cabo de São Vicente. Another reason to go!

The fort was built in the 15th century and was meant to protect the Sagres Peninsular from North African raiders. The use of the fort changed over the years and varied from naval to trade use and is a museum today. Visitors can find more information on Algarve-Tourist.com to plan their visit.

 

 

...you will find a pot of gold. The truth is that none has ever found the end of the rainbow or the promised pot of gold. I haven't found them either but I have found many wonderful places during my travels in Europe. Come follow me and see the world with my eyes. Whenever I think I have found the most wonderful place, I know that I will continue to search, discover and travel. I know that I will find new places and that I will again think that they are the most wonderful places that I've ever seen. This a personal project where I want to share my travel experience, passion for photography and creativity with you.
