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
