PALÁCIO CORREIO MOR

The Palácio do Correio-Mor is unusual in Portugal as still keeping its original grounds – or at least, those that remain are still very large, enough that it retains the atmosphere of a lost Arcadia. It is especially striking when coming from Lisbon and going through the endless periphery of housing block after housing block nestled chaotically amid the motorways.

The house is accessed from a winding path and visible at the last second. Birds chirp away and lush green surrounds it. Evergreen bushes and simple architectural elements mark the transition to the extensive grounds.

If you happen to be in Portugal, come see it for yourself in June!

We will be visiting the palace on June 11, 2016, details here. Send us an email at info@oldportuguesestuff.com if you’d like to join in.
