Photographer's Note

Hi TE friends

Another picture of my trip for the south of Portugal.

This picture was taken in the Lovely Estoi Palace. Now it works like a luxury hotel

In the WS, I post 2 picture of the interior side

I hope you like it !

Estói Palace construction finished in the beginning of the 20th century, ordered by the Viscount of Estói, under the direction of the architect Domingos da Silva Meira.

Sittuated in the village of Estói, nearby Faro, it has around four hectares length, with French-inspired gardens, decorated with statues and trees.

The Palace, in Rococo Style is decorated with panels of glazed tiles and wide glass windows.

Estói is a small peaceful village situated between São Brás de Alportel and Faro, in the Algarve mountain range side. Estói does not have any beach to offer its visitors, however it does present an astonishing architecture, patrimony and cultural heritage.
Among the typical Algarve houses, with flowery narrow streets , there is also a Palace, in rococo architectonic style with a marvellous garden. Nearby Estói one can also visit the Roman Ruins of Milréu, another monument that evidences that the Algarve is not only sun and beach, it has much more to offer and discover
