COME WITH ME IN A TOUR ACROSS OLD LISBON - XXI (CARM CHURCH WINDOWS)

by Antonio Gil April. 21, 2015 3321 views

The ruins of this Gothic church are evocative reminders of the devastation left by the 1755 earthquake. At the time of the earthquake it was the largest church in Lisbon, but today the roofless nave open to the sky is all that remains of the arches and rubble that caved in on the congregation as they were attending mass.

At the entrance of the museum is a stone engraved with Gothic lettering, informing visitors that Pope Clement VII granted 40 days of indulgence to “any faithful Christian” who visits this church.

Love both images, for different reasons. Both are stunning, in their own way; much like a beautiful woman in differing light...

The first one is like a picture within a picture - lovely lines and textures, A!

Wow. I didn't know about Pope Clement's offer: very interesting.

I am pretty sure that I would not last the 40 days. Great shots!

I do like the second but the first makes me look at it more often, don't know why maybe the view of the roof spans make it more powerful.

Le cliché en noir est blanc de cette ouverture est beau, mais j'ai une petite préférence pour le première.
Merci également pour ces informations, toujours des plus interessantes sur ce passé lointain de ces architectures.

Love the framing of the second, both are really nice. Maybe im too big a fan of the black and white.

You had fun with the editing in the second, but it the first that keeps pulling me back for another look.

Like them both but the colour always just has the edge, just makes the capture spring into life.
