This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is all about reflections.
One of the least memorable trips on our Douro river cruise was a visit to Palácio de Mateus, near Vila Real. Please don’t ask why but I was expecting to visit a vineyard for the Mateus Rose wine. Yep, the devil is always in the detail and I failed to connect the dots.
I am not a student of architecture so the building while providing an impressive photo oppotunity on our arrival failed to stir much interest within. Even Wiki only has a page stub.
The official website is www.casademateus.com
I love reflections and your pictures are stunning!
While I wouldn’t call it great architecture, I find it interesting, because it’s unusual. Good photo for reflections.
Well…… it’s a pretty building….. could use a few goldfish in the pond out front!
Beautiful! Did you love Portugal?
Beautiful photos of a place which I also saw but for the first time in an Australian travel show just a matter of months ago. With the explanation 🙂 !
