The signs we found

So, many questions appeared when we arrived at the castle. First of all the area was summer residence of the portugal kings in the past. A prophecy says that Rei Sebastiao (A Medieval King that disappeared after a battle in Africa and people believe that he will return) will come again in a foggy morning to save Portugal. But this is another story.

We found very intriguing facts that turned our attention to the castle of Montemor-o-novo.

The team was shocked by the richness of hidden and well camouflaged signs all around the buildings at the present Convent de Saudacao-nowadays turned into a artistic residence and archeological site.

First is the image of a salamander on the wall of the west wall. Stay tuned for the next post and details.
