Must be owned by the state, or someone very very rich!
Great architecture and beautiful windows.

Beautiful!
The building reminds me of Palais Ferstel here in Vienna.

Julie and I like Manueline architecture and design.

In the old courthouse in Phoenix, the wooden columns behind the Judges' benches are Manueline in design.

Not only beautiful and regal, they're also quite clean!

Love the arches and the detail, so the train station looks good on the outside too JM.

Some of the most beautiful buildings in the world were built for trains.
I hope someone is still doing this type of work!

The details are like icing on a cake.

the buildings in the old days are prettier than the ones they construct nowadays that's all glass.

These are so lacy and ornate they made me think of peacock windows in Nepal. I think you've seen them.

Why don't all buildings look like this? :)

É maravilhosa essa arquitetura, de uma beleza ímpar.

There is only one thing more beautiful than an arch, and that is a double arch!
