Almourol

Almourol 

It is believed that this castle was constructed on the site of a primitive Lusitanian Castro that was later conquered by the Romans during the 1st century B.C.E. It was later remodeled by successive invading forces, including the Alans, Visigoths and Moors, although it is unclear when the actual castle was established.
The castle of Almourol is one of the more emblematic and cenographic medieval military monuments of the Reconquista, and best representation of the influence of the Knights Templar in Portugal. When it was conquered in 1129, by forces loyal to the Portuguese nobility and placed in the trust of Gualdim Pais, the master of the Knights Templar in Portugal, who rebuilt the structure.

This is wonderful!
North Country. hmmmmmm!
That is also the name of the first place in Britain where a blanket curfew was imposed in 2009 for antisocial behaviour on all 16 year olds and under; they had to be indoors by 21:00. When people hear that was in Cornwall and not Glasgow, Newcastle, or whatever, they are astonished, but Cornwall is a VERY deprived area with much poverty and youth disengagement.
I don't know whether the curfew is still in place as I live in Spain now, but it is worrying as this was only 3 miles from where my parents live!

We are always South of something . . . before , . . Antárctica.
For simplicity sake I have shown (and kept) my pictures divided in one group above Tejo ( North Country) and below Tejo (South Country) unless otherwise named.
Sorry to know of your troubles with the young ones.
