 This card sent by Gracinha shows a Douro Valley landscape, classified as World Heritage Site in 2001. 
Wine has been produced by traditional landholders in the Alto Douro region for some 2,000 years. In fact, this is the world oldest wine-producing region. It was created in 1758 under the orientation of Marquis of Pombal. Its main product is the world famous Port wine.

 Edição exclusiva: Região de Turismo Templários
 Tânea sent me a new church card for my collection. The Main Church of Tancos dates back to the 16th century, preserving a Renaissance portico and a Mannerism style altarpiece in gilt carved wood. This place offers a breathtaking view over Tagus river and Almoroul Castle.

 Padua Postais
From Brazil, Anthony sent me this card of Caruaru's cathedral and the city's town hall back in 1900.
The construction of the cathedral started in 1856 and finished after 1907/1909.
