This is outstanding! What a beautiful combination of old styles tied together with slightly (?) newer Portuguese white and yellow. I just love this!

I like the juxtaposition of the old with the older.

It's amazing that stuff that old is still standing!

Maravilhoso cartão postal de Évora, está aqui na minha lista de lugares para visitar um dia! E que céu azul de Brigadeiro ( costumamos falar assim no Brasil quando o céu está perfeitamente claro e azul )!

This is certainly worthy of framing and hanging. Wonderful juxtaposition. And it leads to some questions about religion which I will refrain from asking ... :-)

Roman ruins and romanesque cathedral, a nice combination indeed.Odd to think that already the romans were plagierising the architectural style of Greece.

Peut-être c'est mieux qu'une soit morte ! Meilleure entente !

Nice composition! I love how Roman columns pop up everywhere and that people actually left them there. We tend to bulldoze things after 50 years.
