Quinta da Bacalhoa, Portugal

this estate dates from the 1500's and is obviously much smaller in size
now, but still highly impressive.
I've wanted to visit this palace for quite some timw now, and this year
when in Portugal finally got there, only to discover that you need to
prebook in order to access ... oh well, still got to enjoy the vineyard part of the
gardens, although the building and formal gardens are something to behold.

I wish I was closer to the Western Cape so that I could explore the wine farms there some more, but I imagine exploring the old Portuagese ones must be a great experience.
