What a shame that this has not been maintained. I wonder what this niche was used for.

Splendid tiles! Ah to have a palace garden . . .

@Lowell: It's not a niche, it's just the place between the benches which are on both sides (left and right) of the photo.

This looks very old. Hope it continues to hang in there.

I always love the color used in so much of Portugal! It's one of the things I enjoyed over and over when I was there! Great shot for the day as always, JM! Enjoy your weekend!

the tile work is excellent, they should make an effort to salvage this structure.

Great effect, amazing picture! Any wider shot for my aBoB?

Surprising angle that works wonderfully well! I know where these will end up!

Those tiles are so beautiful - is there any better decor than tiles?:)

Seems its very old but spectacular bench. I very like your Portuguese details.
Have a great weekend!

Good thing I read you comment above, Jm, because I was "seeing" three benches on the Majolica tiles. ;-)

Your city makes the very best use of decorative tiles JM..and they remain beautiful for many, many years.
