PT RR - Group 113 * Surprise September

In the August group none of the postcards were from Portugal or any portuguese speaking countries, in September all the cards were from Portugal.

I didn't discover much about the Frausta Bridge in Vimieiro, only what Paulo had already written on the card. This bridge was part of a Roman route between Olisipo (Lisbon) and Emérita Augusta (Merida, Spain).

I honestly don't know much about Praia da Areia Branca and never been there. Well, when I was traveling by bus from Lisbon to Peniche last June, the bus stopped there for a couple of minutes. 
We can't see the beach on the card but all this area  is a popular surfing destination.
The postcard was sent by Sónia.

A couple of days ago I wrote a post with a few cards of Pena Palace and a few days later Patrícia sent me a new card. Cards of this palace are never enough. 

Inês sent me a card that I already had but no worries about that, the other one wasn't written. 
The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption also called Santarém Cathedral, is located in the historic center of Santarém.
This Jesuit temple, dating from the seventeenth century, was erected on the site where the royal palace of the Alcazaba Nova, which was abandoned since the time of King John II. Later, with the expulsion of the Jesuits from Portugal, by order of the Marquis of Pombal, the building began to host the Patriarchal Seminary after donating D. Maria I, and remained so until the twentieth century.
When the creation of the Diocese of Santarém, in 1975 ensued, the church was elevated to the status of cathedral. - in: wikipedia

Já ficamos algumas vezes na Pousada da Juventude da Areia Branca. É mesmo encostada à praia. Desce-se é anda-se nem 20m. É fixe para os miúdos.
