I am always amazed at the amount of beautiful windows that exist on old buildings in Portugal but I also feel saddened at the way some of them have been left to deteriorate over the years.
They come in all shapes and sizes and are made from an assortment of materials, each oozing untold stories… The variety of different styles of buildings that they are found on is never ending: from castles, churches and chapels, to noble manor houses and abandoned ruins, as well as quinta farm houses and typically styled homes from the various regions around Portugal.
