Santa Maria da Feira Castle - Portugal

Today i received lots of publicity and this card showing the Santa Maria da Feira Castle. It was sent by Sónia "soniacarvalho".

"The castle was built in the 11th century on the site of a pagan sanctuary dedicated to the god Bandeveluco-Toiraeco, from 1117, one of the most important fairs in Portugal took place here, the castle derives its name from this fair. Santa Maria da Feira's castle is an emblematic military work of the medieval Portuguese architecture." - in: http://www.colonialvoyage.com/viaggi/portugalfeiracastle.html
