Oh ugh! This is not what I think of when I think of Sintra. Where's the lush greenery? Oh, there it is, on the roof! :))

That is quite a lot of decay but, it must have been a beautiful bright color at one time.

Dave said...

Love the saturated colours.... pity about the building though

I always find the amount of decay to be sad and yet there is something fascinating in the colors and texture! Great capture as always, JM! Have a great weekend!

This one certainly looks long forgotten. And it looks like it was once very fine and elegant. Too bad.

Jack said...

Ohhh, this one is even more decayed than most of the ones you have shown.

Aren't the colours just lovely. And look at the weeds in the gutters. I have got a feeling that this is much nicer in a photo than in real life .... Like the photo of my wild spring garden I posted today.

It must have been so beautiful in it's day.

RedPat said it! As beautiful as it is, it can't last forever this way.

Triste ver o estado de abandono, uma estrutura tradicional, as janelas lindas!

Oh I love such buildings. They have their own history...
Hope it'll be renovated soon!
