Today HDR photo I took in Sintra, picturesque town near Lisbon, depicting the Monserrate Palace. Built in 1858 by British Sir Francis Cook is surrounded by one of the most beautiful and magical English gardens I've ever seen. I could walk there for hours especially as this place doesn't seem to be very famous amongst tourists visiting Sintra.
