Rooftops on the way up to the Castle of Tomar

Some people think of rooftops as a place with a view to the city, in some hotels you can even find a swimming pool on the rooftop, others put solar power panels on rooftops to reduce power bills, and the rooftops of some cities and towns are covered with a sea of TV antennas. In the case of the City of Tomar, seeing rooftops is inevitable, as soon as you leave the valley where Tomar is built and visit the Castle of Tomar, the Convent of Christ, the chapels of Senhora da Conceição or Senhora da Piedade, etc. These photos were shot when my family and I were walking up to the hill where the Castle of Tomar was built by Gualdim Pais.
