Citânia de Briteiros @ Guimarães

A 10 minute drive away from my hometown;
 Guimaraes, in Portugal;
that is going to be Capital of European Culture in 2012,
you can find ruins 
that date more than 3000 years.

These remains are called Citânia de Briteiros, 
and I must say there is a real historical energy 
flowing through that space.

From the communal bathhouses 
to the Council Chamber, there is a wonder 
about how organized and rooted in nature this settlement was.

It has been over 15 years that I've been there,
but I it never ceases to amaze me.

There is always time for history 
in Lalaland.
