Amazing detail. They knew how to build them back then.

It's like lace made of stone!

Halcyon said...

This is just beautiful. So many details! I can't imagine the work that went into this building. They really don't make them like this anymore.

Lace.
Few days ago I was sketching the 18th century chapel, fell in love with it from first glance. 20min after the start I was sending curses to the architect, it drove me mad to copy so many details. And I know that I would never! try to sketch Manueline Arches.
Why did not they build a square block with square windows?)))

I, too, am amazed by the incredible details and it does indeed look like lace made of stone! Marvelous post/photos as always, JM! And thanks as always for sharing them with us! Have a lovely evening!

Absolutely gorgeous. Do I spot some Celtic symbols or am I just tired? ;-)

@Ciel: Celtic, where? Mmmmm... I don't think so, but don't take my word for granted in this case... :-)))

What fabulous detail! It looks very tall; I know, I sound like I'm 10, but that's what came to mind :}
