Vogon Poet is right. That lighthouse-like tower is an interesting architectural feature. I wonder how it looks at night.

Impressive building, JM. I'm assuming the paper is still published regularly...I hope. Lots of ours are going under...

Maybe the papers tries to be a beacon of light?
The side of the building is really interesting too.

Thanks for your good comment. I'm glad you don't know such things. May it always be so.

Nice shot: is interesting this building ...but the tower seems to me hide a lift!

So, that building would have been constructed during the Salazar dictatorship. Looks a little art-deco from the outside. Any idea what it looks like from inside?

This is an interesting building ... one without tiles ... unless the mural is tiled.

How 'bout that! Publishing daily for 145 years, words and photos. I wonder if there were any photos in the first edition.
