Oh...this is gorgeous, Tom.

I am returning, soon, to check the posts I missed in the past 10 days.
Tom Wilson: Nice bit of design work and 19th century engineering.

No expenses spared in keeping the lid on the Portuguese economy from the look of things Tom..
Tom Wilson: I guess that when it was built in the 19th century, at least some of the population were doing pretty well (while the mass of them definitely were not! When I first started going to Portugal in the 1980s there were still people riding donkeys on badly cobbled roads!)
A wonderful structure Tom, but I wonder about a heavy hail storm. Perhaps tense are Perspex or some shatter proof material.
Tom Wilson: I imagine that it is toughened glass of some kind, Chad.
What a work or art! This is quite a building!
Tom Wilson: It's a very fine restoration - with the added advantage of a good restaurant ;-)
Another beautiful architectural gem you have found Tom.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Brian.
Market forces were clearly at work and the rich were doing OK grin
Tom Wilson: 'Twas ever thus Bill
Beautiful shot, Tom!!!!
