Jerónimos Monastery, Lisbon

Postmarke Olival Basto, dated 10 June 2008.

This is yet another of the sites I hadn't heard of before postcards came into my life. :)  The monastery was founded in 1450 or so, by Henry the Navigator, a Potuguese prince who started Euorpean exploration of the world.

  1. I visited this monastery as part of my tour of Portugal. Beautiful site.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
