Facing East


It doesn't seem to be the same building I posted yesterday but it is the Pena Palace, King Fernando II's architectural mixed style 'delirium'.

That is quite a surprising mix of architecture for King Fernando II! Maybe he didn't listen to his royal architects and royal interior designers, non?

It's a paradise for photographers. Wonderful shot.

Lois said...

Fantastic and amazing that it's the other side of the same building from yesterday! I love it! And so colorful! Have a great evening and a lovely weekend, JM!

I would not have thought this was the same building. Both shots are gorgeous. I can't decide which is my favorite.

I know that it was the same, I like this 'delirium' style!

Fabulous capture of the Pena Palace.

Beautiful and majestic view, so much to see within the composition.

Jack said...

This is crazy. This face of the castle couldn't be any more different from yesterday's if the king had held a competition looking for opposites.

WOnderful to see - thank you! It's crazy, but intriguing architecture!

Randy said...

What a great spot for a party!

Perfect title since the architecture reminds me of the mideast. Beautiful light.

Gunn said...

I agree with you. It looks different,but still very very pretty!

So Disney wasn't the first, but I like King Fernando's version better. This is a wonderful place. Love that color in yesterday's post. I wonder how much the place would sell for. I might have to take a second job to afford this dream :)

Looks like something from Disneyland.

This is one of the most impressive palaces I've ever seen...
God bless you!

It's certainly not what I expect for Portugal. Some people just like things extra "fancy" I suppose. There's no accounting for taste. ;-)

Oh my goodness--delirium indeed.
