Casa Seixas

Formerly a private residence, this early 20th century building standing at the Cascais bay belongs now to the portuguese navy.

A private residence?! Holy cow! It's humongous!

Love the stone (as usual) and the ship detail is wonderful!

I can't believe this was a private home one time. It is quite stunning as seen from the water.

Major WOW factor! Everything about this is awesome!

I can't even imagine living in such a grand home! I would have thought it to be much older than it is.

Fabulous building. I'd call it a castle. Can one go inside for a tour?

Beautiful series...

That's one of those places that I think I might like to live in, but then again ... nah! Better to just visit.

It's amazing what people could afford 'back then'. There is a whole lot more built history in your part of the world to mine.

It is enormous and under such glorious blue skies too.

I must say you are living in a beautiful city. A lovely series of snaps.

That's a treasure for sure. I like the little dinghy bobbing in the water. Does the Portugese Navy use that one? HA
