Castle Pendono

2019-10-08 14:13:28



Castle of Penedono, also known as Castelo do Magriço, sits atop a rocky crest overlooking the village of Penedono.

This tiny yet enchanting castle is topped by graceful turrets and battlements with little to do with many other Portuguese strongholds

The castle was the home of the Coutinhos a family of nobles during the Portuguese dynastic wars of 1383-1385.

It is a must to view the castle as the sunsets, which turns the castles walls into a vivid show of light.
