Monserrate is now officially my favorite palace of Sintra. I love the green surroundings, the colorful rare and exotic flowers, the centennial trees, the beautiful palace interiors, with great windows and arabic details. Luckily it was a nice sunny spring day.P1000376 P1000377 P1000378 P1000380 P1000381 P1000385 P1000390 P1000399
These flowers are originally from Australia and have a very special characteristic: they only flourish from 15 in 15 years! So is kind of unique that this year we have 5 flowers! They’re huge, about 2,5 metres high.P1000403
