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 :)
