This post is a continuation of my Lisbon series after a little break. This time, I am focusing on an interesting historical building called Pavilhão Carlos Lopes, or Carlos Lopes Pavilion in English.
This building was originally designed and built for the 1922 International Exhibition of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. After the exhibition, it was dismantled and transported to Portugal to be reassembled in Parque Eduardo VII, the largest central park in Lisbon. For decades, it has been used as a venue for sporting, cultural, artistic, and political events and has been extensively refurbished recently.
When I was in Lisbon, my hotel happened to be right across the street from the park where this building is located. In fact, I didn't know anything about its existence until I went to the park to take some photos and came upon it by chance. It was not open when I was there, but from Google, I could see that the interior is really elegant and beautiful.
I hope you enjoy these few photos of the exterior of this attractive structure.
All of these photos were taken with my Sony α6000 and the kit lens that came with it. They were processed with Affinity Photo.
