Beautiful and interesting architectural design features.

Are there any interesting places in this world that you have as not been? If there are, my wish for you is that in this New Year, you get to visit some.
This is a purely selfish wish, since I hope you will share your photos of them.

Happy days . . . Arija

I'm loving the pattern on the walls of that building.

Beautifully decorated facade JM, is that tilework, or painted?

Sylvia K said...

I do love the colorful buildings in Portugal as well as your beautiful, blue, blue skies!! Great capture as always, JM!!

JM said...

@Perth DP: It's painted.

Lowell said...

It is another beautiful structure...the colors complement the building perfectly. I'm assuming this is an area of the estate where people go to relax and read?

JM said...

@Lowell: I've visited this garden several times and this building is always closed. I would like to see the interior but you can't even take a peek through the windows because of the shutters. Definitely built for royals only! :-)))

Another great building/photo/place.
And you have BLUE sky!
A good start to the new year.

Crazy brickwork - looks like an op art painting.

A reading pavilion ... I like that .. we are thinking of putting a building out on Whistlers Rest ... maybe I will call it the reading pavilion.

Adorei esses tons de laranja e vermelho, bem diferente do tradicional azul! Belissimo edificio!

Love that geometric pattern!

How bright and colorful! It's too bad it's not open. It would probably be a unique and different place to quietly read.
