Lisbon City Hall


It was late in the evening and the building was closed so I took this shot through the glass door.
You can check the building here

This has to be the most ornate and the grandest city hall that I have ever seen! Fantastic!

Wow, JM. This is just gorgeous! There is nothing quite like a grand staircase.

If we had a city hall like this one, I would go there more often. Great capture through the glass.

I love the staircase and what a grand one it is! Terrific capture to have been taken through a glass door. That's the most beautiful city hall I've ever seen! Have a wonderful week, JM!

And I thought Versailles' town hall staircase was classy! That was before I saw this!

Francisca said...

Now that IS elegant!

An excellent image of a great building. The light effect on the staircase is wonderful.

Fabulous, I would say that it's palace or theatre rather than City Hall:)

Just wanted to respond to the comment you left on my site. The Hualapai Tribe live along the west end and south of the Grand Canyon on the rim. The area is quite large and goes as far south as Route 66. It is the Havasupai Tribe that lives in the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

Wow, this is rather grand entrance right?

Very creative and so well composed. Love the lighting. Quite a magnificent building. Not like the Ocala City Hall! Heh, heh!

Randy said...

What a romantic looking interior. Wonderful photo!

Very neat! I like the effect of looking through the glass, it gives it a "looking back through time" feel. Beautiful place.
