Beautiful building - I love the huge window with all the ornaments.

Is the plastic cover temporary? It is a beautiful building.

Lois said...

It certainly is grand! I was wondering about that plastic cover.

Better a plastic cover that matches than some ugly thing. I would not have noticed it if you had not pointed it out.

Parece ser um hotel que já viveu altos momentos de gloria e continua lindo com os detalhes da façada.Eu espero que o plastico seja mesmo algo temporario.

1892 - that's quite young compared to other buildings there, isn't it?! I love older hotels like that.

James said...

It looks like a nice place. I hope the plastic is temporary.

Plastic cover or no, it appears to be a nice place to stay. A vintage vacation!

VP said...

I do hope it is temporary!

Did the roof spring a leak?
At least the cover is nicely fitted.

Hilda said...

Gorgeous details!
I wouldn't have noticed the plastic cover if you didn't point it out. At least it matches the color of the roof tiles.

Hmmmmm.....I didn't know they had plastic covers in 1892.
Otherwise very beautiful and classy. MB
