Windows and Doors: St. George's Castle; Lisbon, Portugal

During a recent trip to Portugal, the Wanderer toured St. George's Castle in Lisbon. The construction of the castle spanned more than a millennium, with fortifications added by the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, and Moors before being conquered by the Portuguese in 1147. The castle has been used as a military barracks and a royal palace; today it serves as a national monument and museum. The castle sits on a hill in the center of Lisbon and offers many scenic views of the city and Tagus River but the Wanderer also enjoyed photographing some of the beautiful doors, windows, and archways in its courtyards.
