Some things you don't mind seeing in a state of decay and it will be better when they're gone but these kinds of buildings with that beautiful tile work should be restored to all their former glory!

Hay muchas obras de arte por las calles portuguesas, que se estan perdiendo.

I do agree with Lowell, in spite of these still being beautiful even in decay, I would so love to see them restored! They're too incredible to lose! Wonderful captures as always, JM!! Hope your week is going well!

This hurts to see. You'd think some local museum would take these tiles off the wall to preserve them. Otherwise their fate is sealed.
