Hello dear readers,
How is your weekend so far?? Any plans for sunday?? Are you going to have a lazy sunday, sitting on the coach and relaxing..cuddling up with a nice book, perhaps watch a nice rom com and eat popcorn? That’s what sundays are all about! This evening I’m going to the theatre to see Romeo and Juliet at the Romantic city of Sintra. I was inspired by the theme so I did a romantic modern take on Romeo and Juliet. What do you think?
For further inspiration check out the website for Quinta da Regaleira in Sintra city
For those who are unfamiliar with the place here is an excerpt taken from wikipedia: “Quinta da Regaleira is an estate located near the historic center of Sintra, Portugal. It is classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO within the “Cultural Landscape of Sintra”. Along with other palaces in this area (such as the Pena, Monserrate and Seteais palaces), it is one of the principal tourist attractions of Sintra. It consists of a romantic palace and chapel, and a luxurious park featuring lakes, grottoes, wells, benches, fountains, and a vast array of exquisite constructions. The palace is also known as “Palace of Monteiro the Millionaire”, from the nickname of its first owner, António Augusto Carvalho Monteiro.”
I highly recommend if your travelling to Lisbon, Portugal to take a look at Sintra. It’s a magical city amongst the modern, urban and cultural Lisbon 🙂 Perfect for a pair of star crossed lovers 🙂 ENJOY
