A view from up top.





The most famous landmark in the whole region is Palmela Castle.

The castle sits atop the highest hill in the area, at an altitude of 3937 ft (1200 metres) above sea level, at the edge of the Arrabida mountain range.

Situated with magnificent views on a spur of the Serra da Arrabida, Palmela Castle is one of the finest examples of Portuguese military architecture, although the castle itself doesn’t have any important architectural significance.

Neither does it have any strong legends. It does have some interesting history after it was captured from the Moors, however.

Between the 8th and 12th centuries the whole area was dominate by the Moors.

During its history the ownership of this castle passed through various hands as the Moors and Christian Kings fought for its strategic possession.

Afonso I or Dom Afonso Henriques, the first King of Portugal , conquered the castle from the Moors with only sixty warriors.

It was lost again in the continual back-and-forth fighting but was permanently recovered by Sancho I, nicknamed “Sancho the Populator”, the second monarch of Portugal.

Later, in 1423, King Joao I, gave instructions for the castle to be altered into a monastery for the Order of Santiago. It remained so until the Order’s abolition in 1834.

Built in a strategic location, the Palmela Castle was a key point between the Sado and Tejo?s basin and was one of the parts of the defensive triangle of Lisbon.

The castle also had a high tower, bulwarks, the governor house and soldiers quarters, where the governor would stay during any war.

In its walls was born one of the most important pioneers of “Portuguese Africa”, Brito Capelo, who was an officer in the Portuguese Navy and a Portuguese explorer.

He helped chart territory between Angola and Mozambique in southern Central Africa that was unknown to Europeans in the 1870s and 1880s

In the castle also lived other significant people of Portugal’s history, like Dom Nuno Alvares Pereira, who was a Portuguese general of great success who had a decisive role in a 1383-1385 war that assured Portugal's independence from Spanish Castile. He later became a mystic, was beatified by Pope Benedict XV in 1918 and was canonised by Pope Benedict XVI in 2009.

Apparently the Bishop of Evora died a painful death, probably from poisoning, in the dungeon here, as punishment for his part in a conspiracy against the 15th century King Joao II.

Even though the castle was mostly ruined, it was classified as a National Monument on the 16th June 1919.

Partial restoration of the Castle took place in 1940.

Visitors enter the castle through the 14th century gate.

In 1979, after a fair amount of remodeling the convent was inaugurated as a one of 43 other “Pousadas” de Portugal.

The Pousadas are a chain of luxury, traditional or historical hotels in Portugal.

They were envisioned and created in the early 1940s by Government Minister Antonio Ferro, who was also a poet and playwright.

He had the idea of creating hotels that were both rustic and genuinely Portuguese.

Formerly run by the state, they are now run by a private concern, for the state.

With all its austerity, one can still enjoy its interior in a comfortable way, that still preserves a lot of the 17th century charm.

Through the cloister is the entrance to the galleries, the social space of the Pousada.

The Pousada has 23 double rooms and 5 Suites (2 with sea view, 1 with the city view, 1 with the castle view and 1 King size).

All the room are air-conditioned, have a phone, TV, and Internet connectivity.

Its original refectory is now the restaurant and there is a separate bar and swimming pool in the cloister.

The Restaurant’s Specialties include Stuffed crab, Dover sole in a beer marinade, Chicken pot stew and a Regional eggs pudding.

The Pousada is usually fully booked during the annual Grape Harvest Feast in the town below from the 3rd to 8th September every year.

The accommodations usually run 110 – 170 Euros per night although at certain times of the year you may find cheaper rates.

They even have a 2 Nights New Year’s Eve Package from 540 € total per Room / per couple.

The 15th Century Igresia du Santiago (Church of St. James) stands next to the Pousada. It dates back from the 2nd half of the 15th century.

It’s style is from the last phase of late Gothic. Its interior has three naves.

Under its manualine arches can be found the sepulcher, or tomb-chest (a cavernous rock-cut space for interment of the dead), of Jorge of Lencastre, Duke of Coimbra, the last master of the Order of Santiago.

There is also a wall decorated with 17th and 18th Century tiles. It is open for visitors twice a day, Tue – Sun, 10AM and 2PM.

Inside the castle walls, in earlier days, was the Church of Santa Maria.

It is very old and it fell into ruin a long time ago.

It was constructed as a renaissance church and was built on the site of an earlier Moorish Mosque probably dating back to the 12th centur

Religious and Mythical Symbolism in Blade Runner

(idea) by Metacognizant Wed Oct 24 2001 at 20:21:08

Dr. Tyrell: I'm surprised you didn't come here sooner.
Roy: It's not an easy thing to meet your maker.

Blade Runner's Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) is in turns villainous, heroic, beatific, frightening and victimized.

This is not a result of disjointed filmmaking, rather it represents the film's construction of Roy Batty as an amalgamation of archetypes.

The film combines the Biblical figures of Lucifer, Adam and Jesus into one larger-than-life character, who must alternatively petition or confront his creator.

This creator is Dr. Eldon Tyrell (Joe Turkell), who represents God, and provides the context within which Roy exists.

The film uses a large set of visual, sonic, and narrative techniques to draw the parallels that it does between its characters and Biblical figures.

Blade Runner opens with the following scrolling text:
Early in the 21st century THE TYRELL CORPORATION advanced robot evolution into the NEXUS phase--a being virtually identical to a human--known as a replicant.

The NEXUS-6 replicants were superior in strength and agility, and at least equal in intelligence to the genetic engineers who created them.
Here a crucial word choice of "created" over the more neutral "made" brings up intimations of Dr. Eldon Tyrell's godhood. ("Engineers" is a plural noun, but in the same way that in Genesis 1:26 God says "Let us make man", the ultimate burden and glory of creation is solely Tyrell's.)

Dr. Tyrell has created Man, or at least the close simulacrum of Replicant, and he looms over his creations like he does over the miniature humanoid figures on his chessboard. According to Hannibal Chew (James Hong), Dr. Tyrell is omniscient; "He knows everything".

In fact, the owl in his chamber recalls Athena, the goddess of wisdom, whose favorite animal was traditionally the owl (Bulfinch, 1:1).

Most unequivocally, creation Roy calls Dr. Tyrell "the God of Biomechanics".

Dr. Tyrell's godlike status is reflected in Blade Runner's depiction of his place of work and residence, the Tyrell Corporation Building.

Very near the film's beginning, the camera films a low-angle shot approach to this edifice, which has a halo-like spotlight coming out of its roof.

The building's architectural design exaggerates the effect of this and other low angle shots by appearing to lean backwards towards the top of the frame. Its structure also bears a strong resemblance to that of a Mayan temple.

And in contrast with the film's typically dark and heavy color palette, the exterior of the building is usually suffused with golden light. Its interior is decorated with classical busts and columns, recalling Mt. Olympus, and pointing to the godhood of its sole resident.

As God- Dr. Tyrell- 's "prodigal son", who has "done questionable things", Roy confronts his creator in the Tyrell Corporation Building. In this sequence, Roy is portrayed as Evil personified, and is shot in close ups that emphasize his sweaty, smirking, and threatening visage.

In fact, Dr. Tyrell says that Roy has "burned so very, very brightly", drawing a direct comparison to Lucifer- literally "bringer of light". Roy compares himself to this fallen archangel when he misquotes William Blake's America: A Prophecy for Mr. Chew, "Fiery the angels fell, deep thunder roared around their shores, burning with the fires of Orc."

And throughout much of Roy's screentime in Blade Runner, he visually fits the part of the evil Lucifer. For instance, on both occasions that he walks, within the Bradbury Building, towards J.F. Sebastian (William Sanderson)'s apartment, he appears as a heavy, dark shadow, made nominally visible only by the slight back lighting outlining his arm and head.

And he wears a coat with the extremely high, turned-up collar associated with evil since its appearance on the supernaturally frightening film villain Nosfuratu.

But while Roy has an ominous "bad guy" side and stands in as Lucifer, his motivation, as it is clearly delineated, is not the fallen angle's greedy desire to assume ownership of Heaven and Earth.

Rather, he and the replicants he leads spend the course of the film trying to infiltrate the Tyrell Corporation Building in order to get Dr. Tyrell to lengthen their meager four-year life span. Like Adam, of whom God says "'Behold this man is become as one of us'...

Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden" (Genesis 3:22-23), Roy is forbidden to approach Dr. Tyrell, or even to be on the Earth. In fact, the name for the police officers guarding the Earth against the replicants' return- Blade Runner- recalls the cherub with a "fiery sword" (3:24) that guarded the Garden of Eden against Adam.

Also, like Adam made mortal (3:19), Roy becomes decrepit at an acceler
