Ducal Palace of Vila Viçosa
A panoramic view of the Ducal Palace of Vila Viçosa, in the Portuguese Alentejo. For centuries it was the seat of the House of Braganza, one of the most important noble houses in Portugal and the kingdom's ruling house from 1640 until a republican government replaced King Manuel II in the 5 October 1910 revolution.Photograph: Alvesgaspar
