Espelho d'Água



Belém, Lisbon
This late Art Deco building has been restored and transformed into a modern and minimalist cafe.
The Monument to the Discoveries stands in the background.

Woow! Thought it would be some sort of museum... I'll take a java, 2 creams.

I'm with Birdman, it looks like a museum. Nice place for an outdoor coffee though...

There is certain architecture that speaks to me and this one certainly is speaking volumes. I love it. Such gorgeous clean lines. That entrance is stunning.

It's beautiful and the living wall inside is like nothing I've ever seen!

I like the building and I love the monument, but what a strange contrast... I barely recognize the place!

What a gorgeous setting for this stark white building. I too thought it would be a museum or gallery. The blue sky and green water is a work of art itself!
