The second Viceroy of India (check this post) contemplates the Tagus River estuary mouth. The Jeronimus Monastery stands in the background.

Great photo! I've always enjoyed the domes or steeples of churches peeking above the trees. That added statue makes this a special scene.

A very good juxtaposition, so much green and blue, with the Viceroy contemplating the Jeronimos.
