Wow - those are some amazing digs! Who is the "Ambassador of the Sovereign Order of Malta" and what does he do? Fancy residence for a person with a fancy title!
Leif, take a look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sovereign_Military_Order_of_Malta
Never heard of the Order of Malta till now. Very interesting.
la deuxième photo est magnifique, avec cette tour et cette lumiere
Incredible, what a residence! Just reading Foucault's Pendulum (Umberto Eco) and am in the middle of the stories of the Knights Templar.
I think those "digs" are worthy of royalty!
I remember well this castle, just on the beach. Your images of it are great and I never knew about the destination of this magnificent residence.
A very substantial residence. It looks like the setting for a grand novel or an epic movie.
That is so pretty JM! I really like that tower.
I'm sorry, I read about the Malta order and started to giggle. It all seems an oxymoronic pretense of power and nobody cares. Heck, most people have never heard of them.The castle is lovely, though. I did look through the other photos, too. Right on the beach! Why does the grand poohbah need such a grand palace? Sell it and give the money to the poor.Hmmm...someone said that before me, I think.
Oh how I'd LOVE to explore the inside of that place! WoW
Que magnífica arquitetura!As palmeiras também são lindas.Muito bonito o header!
Its a wonderful placethanks for sharing :)Its a great TOWER !!
What a grand residence. I would love to explore it. MB
Wow!The first picture is really an incredible beauty!
Nice castle, with a lovely view !
For some reason this photo reminds me of the fake European buildings that they construct in America, perhaps everything is just too precise ... doesn't make it any less grand or interesting.
I remember being wowed by the building when you first posted it. It's easy to imagine it as a fortress. Magnificent!
What an amazing looking building.
Wow.And for something completely different -- I just came across this Dune House in your country: http://zapgun.pt/wiki/index.php/CasaDuna/HomePage
Not all ambassadors have such a grand place to live in!
