Cascais Citadel


A Petrol Pump, and a rather grand one too.

I believe that for a time the Citadel was used as a National Palace, I think this may be a remnant from that time.

A very old pump but a modern looking nozzle
A very interesting one Ellie.

Great capture of this old pump Ellie!
It's quite a posh pedestal that it stands on Ellie, shades of Chad's tiles.
It is so elegant looking.
