  1. As i promise i came back on the other day to this wonderfull house, this time someone was there and some of the windows where open. A take some photos with this incredible light. And finally explored the rest of the house, it has some really big rooms, each one more beautiful than the other. I also got a lot of new information on the property. You can read about the first visit here: Now let's go see the house. This is the dinning room, In here the family would dine with a wonderfull view of the river and the city on the other side, with their carved fireplace giving them warm. This room is really big, around 3 to 3 and a half meter tall. This is the most beautifull in my opinion. It would be the living room and also a place to entretain guests. It as a incredible fireplace with carved wood and as views to the front of the house and river, unfortunately the floor is full of pieces of chandelier. This derelict chapel once hosted private prayers, the priest would come from the church every sunday to give it to the count's family. This is the guest room, also very damaged. This is the entrance hall, it has a wonderfull dome covering it, through this doors already passed princes, dukes, counts, Presidents and industry tycoons. This stairs lead to the main bedroom, the iron work in beautifull. Over the stair a rotten skylight let light shine on the old stairs. This is the main bedroom, it as a balcony but is too exposed to the street, in here the last true count died 40 years after the monarchy was abolished. This is the extension that where added to the house in the 30's It's really a wonderfull house, a remainder of a far by gone era. Hope you enjoyed.
  2. This mansion was the home of a local noble family that built it in the end of the XVIII Century, the house was renovated around the time of the First World War and is now abandoned for around 20 years. There where some homeless people living in a section of the house some time ago but their gone now. I could not find more information on the property but i plan to come back for a more complete exploration and to take more Photos. This is the Front Facade, there is coat of Arms but i could'nt reach closer to this Facade. There was a beautiful chapell inside the House but both the cealing and the floor are collapsing. Some of the furniture is still on the house along with multiple photos and documents. In the back we can see the real size of the house. It as a wonderfull view of the city and it's river. It as wonderfull rooms with carved fireplaces but i didnt had the time to explore the entire house. Some photos and paintings and books in the Main Bedroom. I will come back to take better photos and will publish them in a new topic.

  7. Only Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun… In the late 40s in the sun every day (a guaranteed 38c in the shade every day and 28c at night) this made a change from some of the soggy explores back in Blighty. After getting a scorching exploring fix, I retired to the pool with a beer. Despite the wealth in The Algarve, the roadsides are littered with derps, from scorched ruins and decaying villas to abandoned construction projects. No history on this one, but it is a fairly recent closure. Holiday explore …Much to the dismay of Mrs The Wombat. This is a nearby abandoned construction project It would have had beautiful views across the atlantic ocean Not enough to warrant it's own report, but a curiosity thanks for looking
