Look Nº 647 - The Palace!

Estou às portas do Palácio Conselheiro Branco em Maiorca. Este imponente Palácio foi construído em 1884 numa tentativa de rivalizar com o Paço de Maiorca. Numa interpretação minha, 2 poderes em confronto, o republicano com o monárquico! Seria residência do Juíz de Fora da Figueira da Foz e, grande impulsionador da Maçonaria na região, uma das razões pelas quais foi edificado. Após a morte do seu proprietário, o Palácio conheceu novas utilizações, foi escola de freiras, consultório médico, creche, até que em 1960 passou a ser propriedade da Câmara Municipal e, assim passou a ser quartel da Guarda Nacional Republicana, na mouche!!! Actualmente encontra-se abandonado à sua sorte e à degradação, sendo apenas utilizado nas várias eleições como Mesa de Voto! Convém dizer que chove dentro do Palácio, mas é colocado um plástico no telhado sempre que há eleições para que os boletins de voto não se molhem!!! A sério!! Se acham que Portugal é um país desenvolvido, pois fora de Lisboa, são estas as histórias do país real! Certamente a Maçonaria figueirense estará com um problema maior em mãos do que se preocupar com o Palácio ahahahah!!!

I am at the gates of the Conselheiro Branco Palace in Maiorca. This imposing Palace was built in 1884 in an attempt to rival the Maiorca Royal Palace. In my interpretation, 2 powers in confrontation, the republican with the monarchist! It would be the residence of the Figueira da Foz Judge and, a great proponent of Freemasonry in the region, one of the reasons why it was built. After the death of its owner, the Palace found new uses, it was a school for nuns, a doctor's office, a day care center, in 1960 it became the property of the City Council and thus became the headquarters of the National Republican Guard!! It is currently abandoned to its fate and degradation, being used only in the various elections as a polling station! It should be said that it rains inside the Palace, but a plastic is placed on the roof whenever there are elections so that the ballot papers don't get wet!!! Seriously!! If you think that Portugal is a developed country, outside Lisbon, these are the stories of the real country! Certainly local Freemasonry will have a bigger problem in hands right now, than worrying about the Palace ahahahah !!!

  7. It's very interesting to know the history of this building. It look wonderful, what a shame it is being neglected. However, I think you're right. The freemasons have other things to worry about right now.
    You look beautiful in this white shirt dress. Great styling. I also love your leopard sneakers.

    It's a shame the palace is not being repaired - it does look lovely from the little you've shared here!

  22. Que lástima, querida. Acho interessante que você faz uma pesquisa minuciosa sobre os temas dos blogs. É tudo da sua cabecinha ou você pesquisa à fundo sobre a história e os lugares históricos daí de Portugal?
