Where? One more clue

 
All your suggestions on the previous post are plausible...but none is correct, so far. I'm really enjoying myself wandering around taking photos of details of my surroundings as the idea for a new book germinates. (It may come to nothing - always a possibility - but will surface somewhere along the line, as it always does.)
 
So before I give you the answer, here's another glimpse showing characteristic features of the place, and a clue as to the general geography of the town, in that the pediment above the door is eroded by salt winds. It has been extremely hot and sultry the past week, and the language my daughter is learning has surprising difficulties and differences from those of its neighbours, but is one that is growing in importance...

What about Lisboa?
The pavement, the azulejos, the salty winds from the Atlantic ocean and the fast growing language which has some interesting differences to spanish (which for me seems to be very similar, but for portugeese people totally different) make me think of Portugal.
I have been there years ago, and I liked it very much.
Bon weekend, Monika

But of course! Portugal makes sense. I've never been to Portugal itself but spent time on the Azores. Gorgeous island and the people were really amazing!

I meant to write "gorgeous islands".

I would say Portugal too. I hope that you are having a great time!
