I can nearly hear their voices..... well, not really.....
Anyway, the roof is very beautiful and I like the way you have taken this shot, the composition, the space and the light from the right side.
A very nice photograph!

Looks like a great place to go for a study in gothic architecture! How about a peek inside the sanctuary, too? (hint, hint)

Your photo makes me feel 4 centuries older, slowly walking along this passage as catholic monk...

ola! just wanted to say that I am enjoying your photos since I came to Oeiras and found your blog, which was 4 months ago...
since I am relatively new here, I was wondering is there an advice you could give me with finding a room for rent here, in Oeiras?
thanks a lot :)

This is a beautiful photo. I love the repeating lines of a colonnade. It makes me think of peace and quiet.
