Window Replica



Pena Palace, Sintra

I honestly don't like replicas but I think this window deserves being shown. Actually, it's not exactly a replica, as you can check by clicking on what must be the most famous window in Portugal which can be seen at the Convent of Christ in Tomar, 115 kms NE of Lisbon.

Sometimes it's nice when they restore buildings like the original. I agree that this window deserves being seen too. It's beautiful!

JM said...

@Halcyon:

It's not restored, it's a different window on another building.

Depending on where, I actually don't mind replicas, if they are good. This one is.

Wild color here, JM! I like the window, replica or not. But I don't know much about such things.

Lindas janelas. Gostei da luz sobre a parede, faz toda uma diferença.

wonderfully composed and shot!!

Jack said...

That is an uncomfortable shade of yellow. I can feel myself wincing.

Randy said...

The details are a feast for the eye and so is the color.

I can understand why you make an exception of this one, Jose. The original is in a sorry state, not that I think restoring that is the way to go, however. That would simply ruin it.

Such remarkable conception and workmanship. A national treasure.

When I see something like this, I am always hoping that there are those who still continue to pursue these talents in some way, whether it is to construct new work or repair the old.
