That is an amazing building but that guy holding up the upper window appears to be under a lot of strain.

Fabulous! They don't build them like that anymore. Such artistry, proportion, detail, and design. I hope they stand for many more centuries.

What a fairytale place/palace this is! If I were younger , it would be a place to weave daydreams about.
