São Julião Fort

This fort dates back to 1553 and is considered to be the greatest coastal defense building in Portugal (a large part is hidden by the palm trees).
During the French invasion, Napolean troops have occupied it in the year of 1807, but British allies conquered it one year later and in 1809 the fort was again in Portuguese hands.

Abandoned building at Carcavelos

In Brazil "muleca" means naughty girl and I think it might fit her well.

This shot was not taken today. Today there's a Code Orange weather alert... It rains cats and dogs and the wind is so strong that I have to keep all shutters closed!

Decay (CXIII)

Former beach bar at Parede built in the 50s and destroyed by the ocean in the 80's. Every winter part of the ruins are washed away. I guess it's the "living" proof of the sea level rise. The same is dramatically happening in many places along the Portuguese coast.
