It's too attractive to be ignored. Get busy and clean it up!!

Neglected but still wonderful...

I love this park even if it is in some disrepair. And such beautiful tile work! Still gorgeous after all these years!

Sylvia K said...

Yes, it is indeed beautiful in spite of its need for repair -- and I do hope it gets taken care of soon! Great capture for the day as always, Jose. And thanks for stopping by my blog and letting me know of the problem, I have re-posted.

despite the state of neglect, the beauty of this structure shines. i hope a little elbow grease will restore this to tiptop shape.

yes, we enjoyed the sights and the food and the ginja :)

You're going to make me cry!


(My Christmas shopping is done and not in malls. I hate malls. Now I'm going to just enjoy taking photos in small shops...)

I hope this will be protected, it is so beautiful. The contrast with what seems to be a green wilderness is very nice.
Very nice picture José!
greetings, Hilde

The tile work seems to be beautiful still, even though the basin and water works are damaged. It is not too far gone to be brought back to beauty.

It needs the restoration... it's too lovely to let fade into memory.

Randy said...

It's so beautiful.

I don't recall ever seeing a photo on your blog that wasn't beautiful, or at least fascinating. This one is both.

How stunning! Looks like a place of fantasy, or a portal to a different time and place. Maybe it's better that some gardens are kept secret and mysterious...

Really beautiful history.
