Lisbonne (#6) … le Castelo de São Jorge

Aujourd’hui, les photos du Château (Castelo) de São Jorge et la vue sur la ville et le Tage … Lieu défensif, forteresse Romaine, fortification Musulmane, palais Royal (Paço Real), mais aussi palais des Evêques, ce lieu, qui a connu une histoire militaire très violente, a malheureusement aussi subi de nombreux tremblements de terre qui lui causèrent de nombreux dommages. Celui de 1755 l’ayant rendu dangereux, il fut fermé au public jusqu’au XXème siècle. Le voici donc tel qu’il apparait maintenant après sa restauration.


Today, photos of the Castle (Castelo) of São Jorge and the view of the city and the Tagus … Defensive Place, Roman fortress, Muslim fortification, Royal Palace (Paço Real), but also Bishops Palace, this place, which experienced a violent military history, has unfortunately also suffered many earthquakes which caused considerable damages. The one that took place in 1755 having made it dangerous, it was closed to the public until the twentieth century. So here it is as it appears now after its restoration.
