The church is beautiful again. But the story of the 75 bodies is so sad and shocking.
cette eglise est magnifique
Tragic history.The issue of National Geographic Traveler magazine that we received yesterday has an article on Lisbon, which rekindled fond memories of our too-brief visit a decade ago.
It's has some tough times this beautiful building JM. Let's hope it's seen the worst!
It's like the Phoenix, rising from the ashes! A tragic history but, so beautiful it had to be rebuilt.
they have done a magnificent job reconstructing it!
Is there a better place to die than the house of God?In those days they still knew how to reconstruct! :-)
It is so beautiful! Lovely paintings!
Faithful reconstruction according to an original is often slow and tricky, but we can say they did it extremely well!
Simply gorgeous... I'd love to be able to go into a cathedral or church like this someday...
Tragic history, but what a terrific reconstruction! Incredibly beautiful church and your captures are superb as always, JM! Hope your week is going well!Sylvia
The light there is awesome. Very special place with such a tragic story behind!
Wow - it is gorgeous!
I wonder how anyone can concentrate on a service with all that to marvel at!
I could stare at this for a long time -- magnificent. So much to see and take in. Great photo, JM, with gorgeous light.
If it fell over today I doubt it would ever be reconstructed in this glory if reconstructed at all. I love the light in the niches and the way you have succeeded with getting such a good image.
Stunning to see...
very elegant image with great character. how goes it. i hope all is well. have a good holiday weekend! we have been travelling and working. the story of our life. we need more photo shoot time. we were in monument valley for christmas and it was cold but absolutely gorgeous images. Happy Holidays!
What a stunning church interior.
So beautiful.Sydney - City and Suburbs
What a magnificent, scrumptious interior! A heavenly church indeed!Happy New Year, Jose'!
Thanks for the reminder that reconstructions in your beautiful city started before our area had any buildings at all ;>)
For your blogging friends across the great blue pond, 1772 is still ancient. LOL! The soft peach walls and lighting makes this a warm church interior, despite its grandeur (which I normally find overwhelming).
