Cabo Espichel II

Cabo Espichel II
Until today there have not been encountered any evidence of Muslim settlement, but the local toponymy has a few markers, such as the name Azóia, that derived from Al Zawiya (meaning hermitage). Some Moorish coins were also discovered in Lapa do Fumo (but minted in Silves) and some ceramics attributed to hermits from the Lapa do Forte do Cavalo and Lapa do Coelho. During the Middle Ages, various legends attracted people to the site; it was a crucible of Portuguese nationalism, when on 29 July 1180, in the square of Cabo Espichel, D. Fuas Roupinho was able to obtain the nation's first naval victory against the Moors.

Beeindruckende Leere dort auf dem Platz...die Wirkung ist enorm und wer auch immer dort gelebt hat, er wusste warum...

Hier in meiner Sprache...manchmal fällt es mir schwer, die Dinge in Englisch auszudrücken, wie ich sie sehe...
