Lisbon (1582-1627)
It's a huge building that was once used as a monastery. Check it here.

An uplifting shot! Looking up at that gorgeous structure with that blue sky is heart-warming. I'd love to spend some time wandering about it's many crevices and alcoves!

I find the age and condition of your old churches mind boggling JM.. Like your angle on this, would have been a challenge to fit the whole building in the frame.

You're right - it's huge! And very beautiful, too. I guess it's not a stretch to imagine there aren't so many people going into monasteries anymore.

I don't know what to say. The sky? The magnificence of the building? The clarity of your image? The fine perspective?
