Waves of the Moon

image by Miguel Claro, Portugal

The castle of Almourol is one of the more emblematic and scenic medieval military monuments of the reconquest, and the best representation of the influence of the Knights Templar in Portugal. Located on a small islet in the middle of the Tagus River, in Vila Nova da Barquinha, in the centre region of the country. The castle was conquered in 1129 and it was part of the defensive line controlled by the Knights Templar, and a stronghold used during the Portuguese reconquest. In this scene the path of Moon and above it, the orange trail of planet Mars, are visible.
