Title : Associação Portuguesa dos Amigos dos Castelos (APAC)

Description :
This is the official website of the "Portuguese Association of the Castle’s Friends" that promotes the study and preservation of castles in Portugal and Europe. The website contains information on the association, its activities and membership and is available in Portuguese; English, French and Spanish. The Portuguese version publishes more information and is reviewed here. Section "Património" contains a useful illustrated catalogue of Portuguese castles (accessible by clicking on "Inventário"). The educational section is quite interesting for the many activities proposed, most of these are exhibitions in Portugal, but there are some details and pictures enabling teachers around the world to be inspired and recreate a "medieval banquet" as well as many other scenes of castle life. There is an area reserved to the members, who can download copies of the news bulletin in PDF format. There is a forum to discuss anything related to the association and castles. News on relevant conferences and activities supported by the association are regularly published. At the time of review some contents were not yet published, and it is hoped that new sections will become accessible and the translations made available. This website may be useful to researchers of medieval archaeology, especially if interested on castles. School teachers may also find some useful information here, even if they do not plan to visit Portugal.
