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!

The inside is also impressive.

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 🙂

Thanks for the journey with your pictures. Reminds me of a movie I saw recently with the same fortress formation.

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

But how long would it take them to run out of food? Patience will have to be pretty strong 🙂
Beautiful place
