#351 - Casa do Alentejo I



























THE HOUSE OF ALENTEJO

It was palace, casino, club. With a history that dates back to the seventeenth century, the flagship house of Alentejo is now a museum of arts and styles. Reference in cultural and gastronomic itinerary from Lisbon, it is also a role model of associations, which seeks to preserve and disseminate the knowledge and traditions Alentejo.

It is located in my favorite streets, Rua Portas de Sto Antão, and tomorrow I'll post more of it.
