Saturday Morning at the Market


'Shot', a very eclectic market, took place at Ribeiro da Cunha Palace yesterday. This decayed 19th century building in Lisbon has been the location for movie shootings and some private parties too. Check it here.

The bottom shot is terrific, the seats and the people add a mosaic of their own.

I bet I would have enjoyed that immensely! Happy Sunday JM!

Wow, what a setting for a market. I'd never get around too looking at what people are selling!

Jack said...

JM, this is a wonderfully grand place. It is an odd place for a market, but I am glad it is being used and enjoyed.

This is "over the top" in terms of a market... Exquisite palace with a floor tile design that looks like fine rugs, beautifully photographed!

Bises,

Such an elegant place for a market!

Sharon said...

I wouldn't know whether to look at what's for sale or to look at the gorgeous building. Looks like you did a little of both. That floor is spectacular!

Genie said...

Your second shot is an awesome one...simply stunning with all of those gorgeous tiles on the floor. The perspective of it is superb. Would love to have been there in person to shop and to just look and take pictures.

Like a flea market, right? I've been to a ton of those but never have seen anything like this...it's a market in a palace!

I would love it, both market and building!

Beautiful building. I love the reservoir in the preceding post as well. Didn't see either in my visit, but you can never see all of a city in a few days. It's nice to have a reason to come back.

I appreciate Lisbon much more now that I've been there. It's truly a lovely city, and I think underappreciated.

PS Glad you enjoyed my post! It's good to hear from someone who lives nearby.

Ficou bem! conseguiste passar um bocadinho da maravilha do espaço:)

Que lugar sedutor... para se viver mil e uma noites.

A primeira foto chamaria de ¨Reflexo do Feminino¨, tanto na pintura como no espelho e no primeiro plano. Impressiona o seu olhar.

Whoa! That absolutely does NOT look like what I was expecting for a market picture! What a beautiful building. No wonder it has been used in the movies etc...
gorgeous pictures -- you found some great angles for shooting there!

what a setting for a market. i love what you've caught in the mirror in the first shot, and the soaring perspective in the second.

A beautiful and elegant spot for a market. I would go there just to be there. MB

Marvellous shots!

Kate said...

I'll never look at our market in quite the same way; the setting overpowers the wares being sold! I'd be more likely to examine the building.

What a great place for a market! I have probably been there on one of my relatives' whirlwind tours of Lisbon! As I've said before, one day I will go alone and not tell them and have a blast enjoying whatever nooks and crannies and interesting spaces I want to spend time in!

I love the Venus on the half-shell!

Fantastic.

Not seeing decay here... just a wonderful space for a market. Stunning floor mosaics.
