That's really Portuguese: the blue tile work decorating an aquarium. It's been long since our visit to Portugal, we'd love to visit again. Great shot!
God bless you!

Nice tile work, the color combination is great.

Another beautiful building. I love the Portuguese way of tiling buildings! I've also loved the way the name, Vasco da Gama, rolls off the tongue. :-)

And this aquarium was built in 1898? Amazing!

Thanks for your nice comment re Sir Attenborough. I didn't know how he got started.

Hope your weekend has been a good one so far!

Beautiful capture and I do love the colorful tile work -- another thing that I love about Portugal! Thanks as always, JM, for sharing the beauty of your country! Enjoy your weekend!

I love those Portuguese tiles. An interesting scene being portrayed here. I guess it sort of fits for an aquarium.

The sea seems to pervade your world ... not wonder Neptune gets a good run. Don't the yellow shells around the edge look great with the colour of the building.
