Quite a Moorish influence.

I'm thrilled to see such wonderful detail on the buildings. It looks like a great deal of love goes into them.

I've never realized how important tile was in your architecture...this is beautiful, also, as so many of your buildings are!

Thanks for the link re flamingos, Jose. I checked it out. What an incredible place! I've never seen so many flamingos in one place. You must have been in awe!

I just love beautifully-decorated buildings. Plain beautiful design is nice, too. It's wonderful that we humans have developed such a a range of beauty in our lives.

When I saw the title I really did wonder what I would see because so many of the buildings you photograph could deserve the description tilemania. I was somewhat disappointed ... this one doesn't seem all that manic ... quite nice in fact.

jolie façade , comme toujours ;)

Amazing and beautiful!

Of course, your title made me laugh. It's a bit too much for my taste, too, but it's a magnificent display.

WOW! That's a private house? Are there any eligible bachelors in the house so I can walk up and down in front of it? ;-D

Gunn said...

Wow, what a place!
Superb shot with beautiful details and amazing light.

I love the blue portugal tiles but this is going way too far. I bet that kept the workers busy. LOL MB
