Paris is one of my favourite cities in the whole world and by now you’re already aware of that! If I had to choose another place to live I’m sure the city of the lights would be the lucky winner (however by now I’m very happy with the tranquillity and tradition that Coimbra offers me). I’ve told you before that the view from Notre Dame is , for me, the most beautiful of all and that’s why this header made sense to me.

Lowther Castle is located in Penrith, Cumbria and its gardens were abandoned in 1935, but before that they represented centuries of careful cultivation by successive generations of the Lowther family. The castle and its grounds have been transferred to a charity called the Lowther Castle and Gardens Trust a few years back, so that the restoration would begin. Although the site opened to the public in 2011, the full restoration of the garden is expected to take 20 to 25 years. It is a very beautiful place to visit if you’re around The Lake District.

The Gavinhos Windmills, located in Penacova (15 min from Coimbra), constitute a special place, even if partially abandoned. The 14 windmills and the amazing view of the surrounding area make it a perfect spot for a lovely sunset experience. Three of these windmills are still operational, yet only one works nowadays.
