Not a sign of wellness when plants start growing in the seams of the walls!

Another great facade. The ornate railings are really stunning and go perfectly with the rest of the building.

Wow, that's a building with some potential. I love the windows but, those vines are going to take over if someone doesn't take charge.

In it's prime it would have been splendid, in it's abandonment still rather dignified don't you think Jose?

I like the looks of it and I wonder why it is abandoned. It looks like it only needs a bit of care. But then I don't know what the inside looks like.

So sad to see such a beautiful old building like this one abandoned and falling apart!! Terrific shot for the day as always, Jose!! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!

The facade is so beautiful, I hope they find a way to restore it, if not the entire building.

Habría que sacar una ley para recuperar los viejos edificios y casas que no tienen uso.
Bonita foto
Un saludo

Even more sad for a beautiful building like this!

There's still potential there, if someone steps in and takes care of the building.

It could be so beautiful.

This one doesn't look all that bad in the photograph but there may be more to see. If you want a view of real urban decay, come over here. Or better still, Detroit.

Abandoned? Really? It is much too fine to be abandoned.
