Photo Cache said...

so beautiful. what kind of architectural design is this?

JM said...

@Photo Cache: The building has a profusion of styles much in accordance with the exotic taste of 19th century Romanticism. It includes the Neo-Gothic, Neo-Manueline, Islamic and Neo-Renaissance.

Kay said...

My goodness - there's so much to look at. It truly does have a profusion of styles! It looks like it was designed by a committee of warring egos. Wonderful shot capturing this explosion of architectural thought.

The colour and detail in this shot is wonderful JM!

Lowell said...

At first I thought it was a church, which is a sort of palace for the clergy. But then architecture seems more Moorish (but what do I know?)...love the rich, saturated colors!

Mama Zen said...

Gorgeous!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Powerful wall colour and dramatic design!

TexWisGirl said...

what a cool entrance/steeple!

Carolina Tavares said...

Uma arquitetura tão diferente do que temos aqui. Por vezes eu penso que um pedaço da história não deixou marcas aqui, parece que deu um salto.

NixBlog said...

Wow! Great shot of this magnificent palace.

Nathalie said...

How spectacular ! And the light adds to the magic with bright oranges and blues. Love this !

Bob Crowe said...

This photo is so warm it could melt. It looks like a confectioner's masterwork.

Joan Elizabeth said...

I love everything about this building, the colours, the patterns and the blue sky to set it off to perfection.
