A wonderful square, are the trees still so green? I'll never forget the Pastelaria Suíça...

Love the style of laying the bricks in the square that has created such a wonderful wave effect, Jose.

Wonderful. It is so interesting to see buildings from another country. I love the red tile roofs. MB

This is a beautiful cityscape. The colors are great, the pockets of red roofs throughout.

An elegant square, with a nice contrast between light and shade.
