Hi guys! Today we should be in Alentejo but the weather wasn’t or side on our trip from Algarve to Lisbon. So instead we went to Mafra!
1. Mafra’s Palace and Convent
2. Garden’s of Cerco
We went to Mafra’s Palace and Convent and it was an incredible experience. The first impression is so unexpected. You’re in a normal city road and suddenly there’s this beautiful and gigantic construction. For us one of the most impressive we’ve seen in Portugal so far. This Palace was built by the king João V in the 18th century. At this time Portugal was really rich because of the colonies like Brazil, so they’re were able to build this massive construction with 1200 divisions!
It’s impossible not to be impressed by the exterior of the Palace.
But the interior is equally impressive, they were able to keep many pieces intact so you can see how the rooms were in the 18th century when the king lived there! Every ceiling is different and the extension of the corridors is also impressive. Also they have one of the most beautiful and important libraries in the world with almost 40.000 books.
After exploring the Palace we went to the gardens. They were inspired by the Versailles gardens of Paris. It was nice but in the winter you can’t truly appreciate it. We’re sure that during spring with all the flowers the impact must be different. So, if you’re a fan of gardens we advise you to go during that time! ☺️

We’re Maria and Du, we met shooting a commercial in Lisbon (Maria’s city) in 2018.
We started a distance relationship flying twice a month (Lisbon - Barcelona) and after a few months of that, we finally moved in together in Barcelona, where Du was born and raised (his parents are from South Korea).
We started our Youtube channel because we love traveling, we always enjoy our trips and we wanted to keep our memories through nice videos, now we can share them with you.
Our final goal would be traveling full-time and someday, helping people around the world doing something nice.
