le panoramique est magnifique, mais je prefere la premiere photo, de quoi en effet avoir le vertige, surtout ne pas regarder en bas

Great shot of the spiral staircase...they're not easy to photograph. I enjoy the rooftop view, too!

Ha Ha cutting down on your blogs so you can do a better job of them. I hadn't noticed the quality dropping off!

This is the kind of place that would scare the pants of my husband.

In Portugal, it seems that even utilitarian structures like this are ornate.

What an interesting structure! I've climbed quite a few stairs like this, and it's always worth while when the view is splendid.
