EVERYTHING in this picture is unusual and mysterious.

People sure knew how to build stuff back then. I love all the details here and the red doors are a nice contrast with the whites and grays.

We loved visiting the Pena Palace. A fanciful building in a dramatic mountaintop setting. Similar the Neuschwanstein, although not as large. Maybe the Rolling Stones visited the room and received inspiration for "Paint it Black," but I doubt it.

The frames around those doors are just amazing.

wow quantos detalhes, tudo é muito lindo!
** Estivemos em Agosto no Brasil visitando a familia.Estaçao de inverno nessa época do ano, mas o inverno lá é uma delicia! :)
Quem me dera curtir mais um pouco do sul do Brasil e da família, mas as aulas já começaram por aqui.De volta à rotina e aguardando com MEDO o Outono- Inverno.O verão daqui foi muito estranho!
Abraços

This really is a fantastic building JM, the doors are fab but the surrounds are just stunning! Not an easy shot to show off both entrances but you have done it!

Red doors, tiles, ornaments - everything is gorgeous!

Jack said...

Marvelous dome ceiling details and wall details, but those oxblood red doors really capture the eyes! Everything you have posted from Sintra has been wonderful.

How beautiful! I love all the detail.

So elaborate...almost looks like a mosque or other religious institution! Sintra certainly is a beautiful place!

Quite a contrast from yesterday's image.

Randy said...

Nice tile and I love the decorative doorways.

Joan Elizabeth said...

ooo red doors ... there is a special allure in doors when they are red. Love the tile patterns too.

Margaret said...

This makes me want to spend more time in Sintra. Is there a name for the elaborate designs done in cement? This must have been very challenging to do.

Está gira, eu gosto

Every time you post a photo from Sintra, I want to go there... Again, the tiles, the carving, the colours, textures, shapes... FAB!
