That first shot is stunning.

Joan Elizabeth said...

The top shot is just so intriguing and interesting. It's hard to realise we are looking at a building, it's more like a fine piece of art. Amazing.

Sharon said...

I can't believe how modern this looks from the outside. It's hard to believe its 300 year history. A very lovely building.

Dina said...

I join all in being stunned by that first shot, especially.

There is a dreamy quality to these exterior shots that reminds me of movie posters from days gone by. Photography meets art. Thanks for sharing!

Interesting ... whereas I really like the second shot and how it is like tugging me to fall over and down. The tiling, the design and the colour is just terrific. You country really has a thing about tiles, Jose.
