We had no idea what to expect and as we approached, we were startled to see that a giant castled loomed over the shepherding village. We knew we were close to the Spain / Portugal border but as we came to find out, the castle in Alburquerque played an important role in the border wars between the two Iberian powerhouses.
|A view of the castle as we approached the city. And also, sheep.|
|Sheep are even on the Alburquerque Coat of Arms. Along with another Strawberry tree, which we still don't believe exist.|
|The castle and its horse guardian.|
|After scaling the wall.|
|Andrew storming the castle.|
|Is that the First National Bank building I see?|
