Oh yes, that's beautiful - and welcome shade when it's hot, I imagine. Your composition is perfect; the people help give it scale without intruding.

This seems so cool, I'd like to walk along here on a warm day.

I love your pespective on this shot. There is something very calming about a series of arches like this. I'm always drawn to such locations.

I love the light coming from deep within the background in this shot and the gleam on the stone floor. So solid yet fluid and open. The scale is truly magnificent.

Oooh, nice repetition here! Love the arches. This place reminds me somewhat of an old courthouse building we have in Tucson...which may make sense since our courthouse was modeled with Moorish influences. Doesn't Portugal have Moorish architecture also?

VP said...

I'm even more sure now, that this square is wonderful and spectacular!
