Restoration


This is the only totally restored room in the decayed 17th century Pombal Palace in Lisbon. It's been used for video installations.

I hope they can acquire the funds to restore the rest of the palace.

As restaurações são muito importantes. Acho que o espaço está sendo sub-aproveitado. Seria necessário que fosse realizada as demais restaurações. Tão belo... e o valor histórico? Nem se fala.

Looks like they've done a good job.

Belle restauration, c'est vrai, mais j'aime bien la photo : 3 portes et 3 panneaux en écho ...

Something is always better than nothing. Let's hope this would be a start...

Realmente é uma pena o estado de muito do nosso património.

A beautiful ceiling...
I am so pleased it has been saved.

The craftmanship that went into the original must be saved for future generations to appreciate.

So the rest of the building is falling down around this room? Intersting thought. :)

The ceiling and the walls look like they come from entirely different rooms. The ceiling is remarkably ornate and beautiful. The walls are entirely flat and unadorned. Odd.

I wonder if they are planning to do the rest? Maybe you have said already -- I am behind on reading blogs as we don't always have time when we're on a roadtrip as now.

anyway this room is beautifully done.

The light is very beautiful, just hinting at what activity may come.
