Random photo of the week

lago_penaRemember when I told you about Parque da Pena, aka, Pena Park?

Pena Park is an area of 85 hectares (some 210 acres) of green landscape, with both native and foreign vegetation, surrounding the Pena Palace, in Sintra. But more than “just” amazing luxurious vegetation the Park also has gardens, small sanctuaries, lakes, a greenhouse and dozens of details you can only see if you’re paying attention – which is clearly not the case with this picture. Shown here is part of a series of 5 lakes that have some of the cutest duck houses I’ve seen.

  1. Unique and beautiful!

    • Yes, it is! This is also one of my fondest childhood memories: When I was a kid I used to bring bread to feed the ducks in these ponds 😀
