This building is now a complete ruin. It still keeps a curtain on the first floor, but there isn't much more than the facade, that was in the shade the moment I passed there. It's near the ruins of the Amieira Thermal Spa. This place, whose thermal waters were so important by the end of the 19th century and first half of the 20th century, is now completely abandoned, only the ruins of the beautiful hotel, thermal spa and chapel still remain, as a witness of its golden period.
Here is a detail that caught my attention.

Now this looks really amazing! Excellent detail of this abandoned building. The silhouettes of the curtains and windows look great, especially against the very blue background. Thanks for sharing, really well seen!

Compliments on seeing this, a brilliant image that is filled with melancholy and sadness, your note speaks of the glory days, but today is little more than a ruin, you have framed this reflects and created such a strong mood with the cobwebs gleaming in the light alongside this strong silhouette. Really nicely done.

Very artistic detail. I love what you did here. I saw a lot of abandoned buildings in Portugal which is sad for such a lovely country.
Anyway, good catch.

even without the signature, difficult to be wrong of author's name. Epitome of beauty of the simple. Technically superior!

There's something about this ruined & windows; the curtain with broken glasses, the cobwebs and plenty of incy wincy there I should think. A strong composition with excellent shades of blue really gives it some eerie atmosphere. Like the simplicity of this image that would have gone unnoticed by a lesser person, Great notes too, Well done. TFS

an ingenious idea to frame this old, broken window like this, rendering it even more mysterious. We can't see all of it or where it finds support in the old wall, it seems to suspend in the air and, even though we can see the sky, the notions of inside and outside seem to get confused. Your creative light management has played a great role in bringing out unexpectedly attractive details and making this graphic image so atmospheric. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

mi colpisce e mi affascina questa foto.
La finestra e la tenda sembrano dimostrare la vita che ancora è in casa, mentre i vetri rotti e le ragnatele parlano del contrario.
Ottimo scatto, mi piacciono la tua idea e la tua realizzazione.
