Silves is a town on the banks of the Arade River in the region of Algarve, Portugal.
The town of Silves was possibly founded during the times of Roman domination, between 700 and 1200 Moors ruled here and Silves was one of the most important towns of Algarve. During this period, a castle / fortress defending the whole region was built in Silves. The castle has been preserved to this day, in the courtyard is a well with a depth of 60 m and cisterns to collect rainwater which were so effective they were used until the 1920s. Castle walls surround the area of 12,000 square meters, a part of the courtyard was changed into gardens.

The garden would need a lot more trees to provide the necessary shade and create a cosy atmosphere. But the colours of this view are stunning and the castle provides a fine background.

splendida vista dell'interno di questo castello, vedo che ci stavano ancora lavorando, immagino che adesso sia ancora più bello.
Sembra molto ampio e la trasformazione in giardino è senza dubbio un'ottima soluzione.

fajnie zrobiony ogród na dziedzińcu ruin zamku. Ciekawe te ceglane przejścia i ładna roslinność.

Bonjour, cher Ryszard,
Tout est beau dans cette composition, outre l'architecture, les jardins contribuent à embellir l'ensemble.

Excellent point of view that clearly shows us the massive fortifications and the well maintained garden area designed for relaxation. The red earthworks make a lovely contrast with the pastel blue sky and green trees. A lovely sense of animation.
