The palace gardens

Oeiras has a vast cultural agenda; most of the events take place at the gardens of the palace, from spring to autumn. On the right photo things were getting ready for the night show; some performances take place in this area, others by the cascade.

A lucky town to have such a beautiful place for events..
Is it in town or a little further?

HZDP said...

ennn, these are nice photos...I guess your place must be a less populated area, I barely see people in your photos!

Stunningly beautiful photos. It sure looks inviting to me. I agree with Tanya, I'd love to attend something there too.

Marie-Noyale, the palace is right in the center of downtown, the city has developed around it. The closer to the palace, the older the buildings are.

Hzdp, I allways try to get photos without people but, yes, Oeiras is a quite place, that's why I love lving here.
