Views from the Upper Terrace

The final home of Josรฉ Francisco da Silva had multiple terraces, ornate ceilings and even a grotto. Consequently it is a rather lovely place to while away an hour or two, or even longer if you have enough pennies for an overnight stay. It is a pousada so comes with a price tag. However it has become a favourite for ours for taking visitors to for a coffee or light lunch, so I thought you might like to visit too as part of Flashback Friday & SquareUp.

The post below is one of my very early ones so I almost hesitated in sharing it again. However thanks to a quick edit with the new block editor is looks much better and so please visit as it contains some great images of this amazing place. To visit click on photo or title below, and if you enjoy exploring that post do come back here to check out another two that look at the fountains and the azulejos in more detail. The latter, even if I say so myself, is fascinating.

It's a good life walking, cooking, photographing, volunteering, reading, blogging, and best of all spending time with family, friends but unfortunately no longer the cat.

  1. Not been since last year, with Lisa- heck, no- it’s the November before last! But I always cast my eye over it when we whizz along the motorway. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. A little faded and the garden needed attention last summer.Breakfast demands a leisurely attitude to life ,a Portuguese requirement in all matters!

  3. Looks fabulous and would be a perfect image for the pink challenge (when it happens). I wonder how expensive it is to stay here. BTW when looking at this site on my phone or via the Reader it only shows part of the post and then a link “Visit Becky in Portugal for the full post” I have noticed this on a few blogs, possibly those with older themes?

    1. hmmm interesting on the post view, I wonder if it is because I am inserting an older post. Will investigate

      yay there will be a pink month!

    2. Not all that expensive, depending on time of year and sometimes the Pousadas do offers. It is a bit out of the way, so you’d need a car though ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Love to hear your thoughts
