Even the trash bin in the second shot is full of color, though the bars and metal covers on the first floor windows tell a story.

This is a fabulous part of town, M. So colorful.
I love the colors. Especially the red.
Very nice photography in this narrow street !
Are the buildings meant to reflect the colors of the national flag? That's an awful lot of visual intensity for a small street.
Não me recordo desta travessa, mas os casarios antigos são fantásticos. Precisam ser preservados. Quanta história!

Wow, these colours are so different from anything you've shown us before JM, i have a 'thing' about red, but the racing green is fantastic also.P.s. sounds like your Chinese dancer would have been fun to watch..
The Portuguese flag colours side by side!
Those two houses certainly stand out among the others.
Great colors, fine building!
In Libonne, you have many beautifull housses in color.
Congratulations for such a nice picture of my house, and the generality of the comments makes it feel it's worth the effort, nevertheless multiple problems with graffiti/tagging, people vomiting (if not doing worse things) at your door, etc.Thank you all.
... and, just for information, no - the red and green in both buildings was not on purpose, it is not an intended combination.The chosen red was approved by an official committee as to be close to the original coloring of the building at some point. This building (the red) is believed to be one of the few remainders of the original construction of Bairro Alto district, from the 16th century. So it's old, should be close to 500 years old.
