Cascais Citadel


This is one of the defensive turrets of the Citadel at Cascais, in Portugal. They are big enough for a couple of people to stand inside, with weapons.
.....

Half term etc, so I'm taking a break for a couple of weeks. I have uploaded some "holiday" pictures, but may not be around very often to comment on other people's pictures.

Impressive picture, Ellie.

Looks like the kind of turret I would build...sort of wonky!
Hope you are having a good break. I've been enjoying your holiday snapssmile
What a beautiful structure Ellie!
Nicely chosen bit of the building Ellie and what a great sky.

I like the old bricks against the clear blue sky. A VERY clear blue sky even... your comment about defensive turrets reminds me of Troy (the movie). I have to stop watching so many movies eh.
