More portuguese cards

These cards were sent by Maria She's a postcard collector but she also collect other stuff, like antiques, pocket calendars, coins, stamps.... I've sent her cards and stamps, she sent me these 5 cards.

This is the Poço of Santigo Bridge, in Pessegueiro do Vouga, an old railway bridge inaugurated in 1913. It has a height of about 28 metres, making it the highest stone bridge in the country. In 1972, the traditional machine trains were replaced by railcars and in 1990 the line was closed. Today, the bridge still stands in the place where it has always been, but the rails were ripped off and so it seems unlikely to ever see again a train here.

These are typical granaries in Peneda Mountain, the 5th highest mountain in portuguese mainland.

Monção is a city in northern Portugal. This is the Deu-la-Deu Square.

Paredes de Coura is also a city in nothern Portugal. This town is well known for it's alternative music summer festival.
At last, a very portuguese card from Barcelos with a girl in a typical costume and the famous Barcelos pottery, which includes de Barcelos rooster.
