St. Marta Lighthouse - Portugal

Susana was missing the feeling of sending cards and that's why she decided to send me this surprise card.
This is a card from Cascais with the Santa Marta Lighthouse.

This lighthouse located in Cascais, a coastal town, located 20 kilometers west of Lisbon, was built in the 17th century. The lighthouse is still functional nowadays but, having been automated, it doesn't need constant surveilance anymore and has been converted in the first museum dedicated to the lighthouses of the portuguese coast.
