Postcrossing Meeting in Lisbon and Sintra 05-06 August (Part II)

From the meeting with "kazinhabueno" in Sintra I received these great postcards:


"SusanaPortugal" sent this view not from the Nacional Palace of Sintra, as the postcard says, but from Regaleira Palace. "Quinta da Regaleira is an estate located near the historic center of Sintra, Portugal. It is classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO within the "Cultural Landscape of Sintra". Along with other palaces in this area (such as the Pena, Monserrate and Seteais palaces), it is one of the principal tourist attractions of Sintra. It consists of a romantic palace and chapel, and a luxurious park featuring lakes, grottoes, wells, benches, fountains, and a vast array of exquisite constructions. The palace is also known as "Palace of Monteiro the Millionaire", from the nickname of its first owner, António Augusto Carvalho Monteiro." In: Wikipedia


"Martinha" sent this great natural waterfall from one of the many gardens in Sintra. One more card for my waterfalls collection!
