Default TO ARISTIDES (SANCHOPANZA)!

Hi Aristides!

Wow, im really impressed with your contact...after spending some time photographing that amazing house and searching for its history, now a member of the family wrote me some words..well, im really happy to be ablle to show the world this amazing building and its history!

About the "haunted" mood i tried to create...believe me that when i saw at that night, without knowing anything about it, the mood created on this place was amazing to me...so, i wrote those lines trying to give all members that sensations! Then, as i was amazed with this, i tried to know more aand then i found the history of your granfather..it must be an honnor to belong his family, im really amazed with your grandfather fights for human rights.

Well, hope you and family dont mind that i posted these to pictures of the house...if you are interested i have a few more ao add your contact here and i will be happy to shaare it with you.

Regards

Marco

Dear Marco,

thank you for your reply and I'm sorry for writing back so late! Thank you for your kind words and yes my family likes your pictures and I would definitely enjoy to see more of your pictures, especially of this mansion in Cabanas. This house to me is beautiful because of its French-style addition which can make the appearance somewhat romantic while the crucifix makes the mansion look more like a former monastery, which it never was. My grandfather had a strong Catholic fervor, and followed his ancestors in being very open about his faith, as it is common in Portugal to have Marian and Christian statues, etc.
Good luck with your photography and keep in touch,
aristides
