Do castelo subsistem alguns panos de muralha, portas e torres. --------------------------------------------------------------- ++PINHEL*DUARDA*BEIRA++ *Pinhel, an old village and former fortified outpost on a mountainous shelf near to Spain, has many houses decorated with Coats of Arms and beautiful wrought iron balconies.
