Estou quase certo que esta aguarela representa uma parte do Palácio da Regaleira em Sintra. Passei por aqui em 2008.
I am almost sure this is a small part of Regaleira Palace in the beautiful village of Sintra.

I found these old and abandoned houses by the Mondego River near Carregal do Sal, Beira Alta. It was a great fishing day except no one caught a single fish. But the picnic and the company of family more than made up for it.

The estate of Vinha da Capela (literally “Chapel Vineyard”) in Beira Alta belonged to a good family friend, an attorney from Lisbon, José Videira. I do think however, that his true passion was painting. The house has been empty and abandoned for as long as I can remember. I remember visiting a few times as a child and marveling at the beautiful watercolors, oils and pencil drawings on the walls. I am sure this was the first experience that sparked my own interest in painting, watercolor especially.
