Oops, had some busy days, so I skipped my usual Wednesday post.
In the neighbourhood of Estrela in Lisbon, one finds this church, opposite the Jardim da Estrela (jardim = park). Lisbon has many churches and this is one of the two I visited.
This neoclassical beauty was built by order of Dona Maria I, in gratitude for a male heir. She is also entombed inside the basilica. Wait until I show you the interior of the place - she was very grateful. Heck, I don't think many people appreciate how rich Portuguese royalty was, before they fell in love with Brazil in the 19th century. In general, the country was also prosperous.
Now, that is what one call BOLLARDS, eh?
