Photographer's Note

The building of the Palace of Buçaco, in neo-Manueline, is decorated with tile panels, frescoes and paintings depicting the Epic of the Portuguese discoveries, all of them signed by some of the great masters of the arts.
The framework displays profiles of Efteling plowed in Ançã stone, motives of the cloister of the Jeronimos Monastery, some arabesques and flushes of the convent of Christ, claiming a flowery Gothic with romantic episodes in contrast with an austere monastic severity.
