Assault to the Castle of Guimaraes

Assault to the Castle of Guimaraes

Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the Castle of Guimaraes. It was built in the 10th century and reconstructed in the 13th. Don´t worry, I won´t bother you with its history :) Follow the link if you are interested.


As you get close to it, you wonder why would you even try to scale those walls. I mean, I checked the place and this is the weakest point!

How can we break these magnificent defenses? Sit and wait. Seriously, that´s how sieges started. Stay far enough from the castle but force the citizens  to stay inside until they run out of food. The best of it is that you don´t need to climb :)

  1. Very impressive castle. I love castles with their dark history, with kings and queens, princes and princesses, intrigues and so on.
    You have a pic which makes the link between those times and our times. You’re in the tower and take a photo of the street where are cars :)
    It was funny to see that among ruins, walls, very old weapons
    Great post, David :)
    I think it’s cool to be there

    1. Thank you :)
      The castle is in the middle of the city so it wasn´t difficult :D
      The city combines old and modern times perfectly.
      I guess I can do another post. Guimaraes merece!
      Hugs :)

  2. But how long would it take them to run out of food? Patience will have to be pretty strong :-)
    Beautiful place
