    This is absolutely outstanding palace, unique architecture and amazing interior. The wall painting seems to be very intricate and it’s so nice to know the greenish around the palace still flourishes.

    I have wanted to go to Portugal forever! I’m hoping 2018 is the year I can make it happen! The chapel looks adorable, especially the stained glass windows.

  28. I think if there is one thing we do well in Europe it’s castles and palaces (well we use to do well ha ha) and this one is a great example of it! Love the stained glass of the chapel too!
