Braga - Igreja de Santa Cruz

 

Built 1625-1637 in the Baroque style.  It's insensitive neighbour is another thing entirely - horrendous planning decisions are not restricted to the UK!

I see what you are saying, Tom.

The main item, though, is a stunner, and nothing around it can dilute that.
Tom Wilson: You are right there, Ray - I think that if the other building had been reflective glass, it would have worked quite well smile

The two are totally at odds with one another
Tom Wilson: They are aren't they?
Beauty and the beast....no prize for knowing which is which
Tom Wilson: I think I can guess, Bill.
It is a very fancy building isn't it.
Tom Wilson: Typical over the top Baroque smile
C'est magnifique !
Tom Wilson: Magnifique indeed, Martine!
Yes it is a beautiful building, but one often thinks that the people who allow these other monstrosities to be built next to such a fine building have no imagination whatsoever.
Tom Wilson: You are right there, Brian.
I see what you mean, at least the contrast proves the point that the old days were the best for fine buildings
Tom Wilson: Yes, I think modern architects have lost the art of decoration - everything has to make an impact on shape alone.
Talk about an architectural clash...
Tom Wilson: Bit of a contrast, eh?
