2 cool shots, but I especially loved that classic car parked out front!

WOW, was this a palace in days gone by?

JM said...

@Arija: This was the location of the Royal Ribeira Palace until it was destroyed by the great 1755 Lisbon Earthquake. When the city was rebuilt, the symmetrical buildings of this huge square were filled with government bureaus that regulated customs and port activities. Now these buildings house main offices of several ministries.

The lighting on the arches really does it for me. Lovely shot, JM.

Love both your pictures, but the outside with the strange car in foreground is a masterpiece!

That interior takes my breath away. What an amazing way to highlight the groin vaults, so modern and yet so classic.

Love those soaring ceilings - it's beautifully lit.

It's a gorgeous building from any angle! And I love the "Wonder Room." I'm assuming the latest and greatest fashions are on display here for sale to the general public? What great columns!

Great looking interior. Love the building as a whole.

I love the arches in that place. But the outside looks so deserted, what's up? No fashionistas in Lisbon? :)

I love the simplicity of this interior. I know it is complex but it is not as opulent like so many of the interiors in your country.
