  Rafael at Quinta da Boa Vista
by RafaelTheSecond

It is a place where the suburbian people have fun, large gardens and also the city's zoo. But that area used to be the King of Portugal and Brazil House, in the 17th Century. The place is very historic, it is a very important place, unfortunately not so well preserved by the authorities!
