Windows on the World in this post is not a reference to the NY’s World Trade Center restaurant nor is it a literary allusion to Fréderic Beigbeder‘s novel, it’s simply the panorama of the Atlantic Ocean as a limit to be crossed by European expeditions –  including Portugal,  making their way into the New World.

It’s also what you get to admire from the balcony of Palacio Pena in Sintra, wonderful!

    What an intriguing picture. The cement barrier almost looks like bars and it looks like quite a drop from there down to the ocean. Incredible view. Thank you for sharing.
