Photographed on my first visit to the Mateus Palace, which was built in 1745 and is
considered a perfect example of baroque architecture, having an impressive façade with
beautiful pinnacles on the roof and an ornate balustraded stairway, all reflecting on a
pond in front.
Located in the municipality of Vila Real, it has been described as the most fantastic
country house in Portugal and has been made famous worldwide, being featured on
the label of Mateus Rosé wine.
