Millennium bcp Foundation supports restoration of Paderne Castle... 


The Castle of Paderne will be subject to an intervention to consolidate a tower of the XII century, a work promoted by the Regional Direction of Culture of the Algarve that will count with support of Foundation Millennium bcp.

As a patron, the Foundation associated itself with the project that it considers "extremely important" because it is related to an ex-libris from Albufeira. "Whoever enters the Algarve from the north, by land, faces the image of the Castle of Paderne, an image that has been there for more than 900 years. And if it has reached today it would be sinful not to keep what we inherited with a past so loaded with years and meaning, "said Fernando Nogueira, president of the Foundation, who was present in the Paços do Concelho to sign the collaboration protocol.

Fernando Nogueira reminded that the fortress was one of the last castles conquered in the Muslim occupation and that allowed the construction of the Portuguese State. "We are here to help preserve a monument that is distinguished from others for its antique and because it can bring added value to Albufeira and the Algarve and be a job generator," he added.
