Photographer's Note

Please open the photo by right clicking it, you'll be glad you did.

Continuing with my shots from the Bolsa Palace in Porto, I'll show you three photos of the Inner Courtyard.

First of all, the lighting on the computer I'm using doesn't look very good, its very dark. I hope the image you're looking at isn't dark. It's much brighter on my laptop. I really hope it doesn't come across as a poorly lit shot.

Anyways...the inner courtyard is called the Patio of the Nations. It has an Octagonal Dome with glass panels, and surrounding it are 20 Coat of Arms. In the WS i'll post a closer shot of that.

Again, its hard to get a sense of size here...but even with my 8mm super wide angle lens I couldn't fit it all inside the frame. This place is HUGE.
Which probably doesn't translate in the photo.

I'm glad to hear a few of you have said you haven't seen or heard of this Palace in Porto. Its a hidden Gem in the City. There is another hidden Palace in Porto that i'll post next :) Maybe you haven't seen that one as well.
