The construction of the Mont`Alto Sanatorium began in 1932. Due to the appearance of a large number of people who had contracted tubercolosis, it was necessary to expand the facilities, and these enlargement works were completed in 1958. This sanatorium was the last one built in Portugal.

I can not find any information about this location. We visited this one in August 2015, during a holiday trip, and got caught by a mysterious young lady, just wearing a skirt and bra. She didn’t like pictures and finally sent us away!
I visited this abandoned swimming pool in September 2016, during a reunion-weekend with old friends.
Huize Rust en Vreugde was built in baroque style in 1913 as a copy of the 18th century hunting lodge of the kings of Denmark. That hunting lodge was called Hermitage Klampenborg.
During a holiday trip in the Belgian Ardennes, on our way to the beautiful city of Durbuy, we passed this abandoned building. There is not much information to be found about this urbex location, but what I know is that it used to be a small hotel.
Fort de la Chartreuse was built to defend the Belgian city of Liege. It was built by the Dutch in 1817 at Mont Cornillon and came after the Belgian Revolution in 1830 in the hands of the Belgians.
