Lagos - Ponte de Piedade

This was a card I myself sent to my parents.  It's postmarked Portimao and dated 11 May 1978.

Portugal - Algarve
Lagos - Ponte de Piedade.

This is a huge rock formation hollowed out by the sea into caves and arches.  I said in the message that I had visited and taken a boat trip around the formations, but I'm sorry to say I have no recollection of it whatsoever, confirming my need to collect the cards.  Backing up memories. :)

I am sure I have a postcard from Etretat in Normandy which has remarkably similar rock formations.  I will try to look it out and post it later.

  1. Reminds me of Los Arcos at Cabo San Lucas. Amazing at the creation of such interesting formations by the action of the sea on rocks.

  2. Another place, I remembered afterwards, is the Ardeche valley. There are some similar arches there.


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