É uma palavra portuguesa que expressa um sentimento, que expressa um estado de alma...

Há quem diga que foi inventada durante o tempo dos descobrimentos, pois era o que as famílias dos marinheiros sentiam quando eles partiam à descoberta dos novos mundos e ficavam anos e anos sem terem notícias suas!

E na verdade, ao longo de todos estes anos, nós aqui no Panoramio, começamos a sentir-nos como uma verdadeira família.

Infelizmente chegou a hora de vos dizer adeus, meus queridos amigos... :-(

Não me quero ir embora sem, pela última vez, vos dar mais um F & L e endereçar-vos desde aqui, da cidade do Porto em Portugal, um grande abraço já cheio de saudades,

Mário Eloi Castro

Thank you very much to all for your visits, warm and beautiful comments and for all feelings and emotions that we have shared between us so many years.

I am on Ipernity now.


The last petition.

Hi, dear friend, all these years Panoramio was for me unforgettable experience, bearing a lot of beauty from all over the world, many ideas for new trips and especially many new friendships! Panoramio was a wonderful community of people who appreciate the loveliness in the world around us and who is able to share it with others. I wish you from all my heart happiness, health and success, many trips, great pictures and emotions! I'll be glad if we continue to share photos and impressions! I hope we can preserve a piece of our facebook There is also our Latest Petition in, recent history is proving, that only with petitions we can't do anything, if Google doesn't want to hear anymore our voices, but we have to try! Please share this message with your contacts, any mail and any signature counts!

Wonderful sky!


Best greetings from Rio Grande do Sul, south of Brazil

Great shot, wonderful.regards.

I can´t blame, but only myself. I gave all my precious photos for free to Google, because I wanted to see my picture in the world of map, that´s it. Now all of 1300 photos are there - if they say that I own them - they all are for free to download. I can do nothing anymore with it.


After the first petition with 10.500 signatures, in June 2015 Google declared that "Panoramio will stay alive". Now just one year after that statement, they decided to close Panoramio forever. Step by step they destroyed their own platform !!! Google – Earth, User’s Statistics last year suffered a nervous breakdown ! Any sense of credibility and justice is totally lost, together with our work !!!!!!!!! In a normal & democratic world, this isn’t fare comportment.

We can still fight for the preservation of this platform! The address for your protest: Alphabet Inc. Attn Corporate Secretary 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043 Email:

There is also our Latest Petition in, but recent history is proving, that only with petitions we can't do anything, if Google doesn't want to hear our voices & respect the hours we spent to create its empire.

In any case, there is a God, who is seeing all this injustice !
