Spain -Vila Viçosa, vila ducal renascentista

This is the Portuguese proposal, is it not? The photograph shows the Portuguese Vila Viçosa that was the palace of the Braganza royal family.

Didn't mean to nitpick! And there is indeed a Vila Viçosa in Spain, but it appears to be a much older residence of the Braganza family and looks to be a more typical "Castle" and not in too great a state. I quite like the Portuguese palace as it is unique in not being a "Versailles of..." (i.e. Mafra? Ludwigsburg, Schwetzingen in Germany). It's a really interesting and impressive building and has Manueline aspects as well a beautiful Renaissance facade in the blue marble from the area. It does have important historical ramifications for the history of the Iberian peninsula and the existence of Portugal after the Restaurades. I have to wonder if Portugal will get either of its proposed palaces added to the list.

Shwedagon Pagoda

I am really happy with this news, I once proposed Shwedagon Pagoda in Top 50 Missing. It is one of the best sacred stupas of Southeast Asia.
