Almost Christmas

The 3 cards i got today, 2 from Portugal and 1 from Austria, were like christmas presents and i really liked all of them.

Sibylle "Robin67" sent me another beautiful card, this time a card from Tragöss, a municipality in the district of Bruck an der Mur in Styria.

From Ana "ninocas" a wonderful Monserrate Palace card, "an exotic palatial villa located near Sintra, the traditional summer resort of the Portuguese court. It was built in 1858 for Sir Francis Cook, an English baronet created visconde de Monserrate by King Luís. Monserrate turned to an English architect, James Knowles Jr., for designs. Though its Moghul-inspired details are unique in Portugal, its eclecticism is a fine example of the Sintra Romanticism, along with other nearby palácios, such as the Pena Palace." - in wikipedia.

Finally, from Zé "zepombal" a Porto de Mós Castle card. "This castle was conquered to the Moors by the first king of Portugal, Dom Afonso Henriques, in 1148, and successively rebuilt over the centuries until it reached its present appearance in the 15th century, with two turrets crowned by cone-shaped roofs of green tiles and a beautiful sculpted loggia." - in:
