Castelo Rodrigo - Portugal

This is the last touchnote card i've received. I've sent it to myself and used one of my pictures of Castelo Rodrigo, a village located in my district. This village is probably one of the most well kept Historical Villages of Portugal from XII century.

The card shows the Main Church of the village, dedicated to Our Lady of Rocamador.
It was founded in 1192 by the Hospitaller Friars to serve as support to the pilgrims on the way to Santiago de Compostela.
