Castle of Penela

The castle has a rich history dating back to the Moorish period in the 9th century. Within the castle complex, there is an Interpretation Center that provides visitors with information about the history, architecture, and its significance. It offers exhibits, displays, and multimedia presentations to enhance the visitor’s understanding of the site.

On the outskirts of the village of Espinhal there is a natural element of great beauty, which is one of the biggest attractions in the region. The waterfall provides a reasonable route in a leafy valley, where the river forms small lakes and waterfalls.
Nearby there is a viewpoint, but it doesn’t even allow you to get an idea of the waterfall, so you have to go down and walk a little. The path is short, but somewhat uneven, requiring some caution with children and people with physical problems.

It's rhere CC Bar

I did not go in.

In fact, in location, I didn’t even realize it would be a bar, I just appreciated the curious use of an old building.

After researching, I found the reality, and I no longer know if it is a real use of an old building, or a pastiche to take advantage of the integration into the landscape.

The truth is that it works visually, and if I had the opportunity to spend a few minutes in a bar in Penela, it would be my natural choice.
