questa è una magnifica architettura e la tua foto la rappresenta molto bene.
Mi piacciono queste condivisioni, si imparano a conoscere nuovi luoghi.
La foto è ben realizzata e il cielo blu è un ottimo sfondo per questo palazzo.

this is an extraordinary building and your presentation of it is superb. I like very much the simple composition, the close and upward point of view, the discreet perspective. The light is wonderful and the combination of colours, details and shadows has given a very elegant, effective and impressive description. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Quel beau bâtiment. Gaudi s'est vraiment surpassé pour celui-ci.J'aurais beaucoup aimé le voir en personne. Il a l'air presque neuf et d'aspect assez moderne.La technique et le point de vue sont parfaits.

Wonderful architecture. l like Gaudi's art.
This palace looks like a fairy tale-castle.
The POV is excellent.
l like the colours, especially the blue sky backgound.
Have a nice weekend

Your pov shows the best side of this palace, I think. Gaudi was a master, no doubt.
A little bit of overexposure, but a nice building.

The Episcopal Palace of Astorga is a Gaudi architectural masterpiece, with roots in gothic culture, the Palace rises heavenward with castle elements and unique windows.
Another exciting historical place to visit.
Thanks for sharing,

Lovely capture from this attractive architecture. The colours are superb and the warm light on the building contrasts nicely with the deep blue of the sky. The architectural details are well captured under the bright light of day. The whole image is very crisp. A high quality shot !

Hi Abigniew, Excellent POV which enable viewer to see entire architecture. The hue in the sky is giving a nice color contrasts to the buildings and surroundings. Great details and clarity with great sharpness. The people walking in the street adds human touch to the quiet area. Thank for sharing

you have chosen the best framing in order to catch the fantastic architecture of Gaudí, and to emphasize at same time its beautiful lines and curves.
This is one of the two works of Gaudí out of Catalonia, and shows us a bit different style, as a medieval castle.
I like the quality of the image and of the colors, and the great light as well.
A nice work.

Through your picture, I know something new today...that Gaudi did create some memorable works outside of Catalonia. It seems the palace is out of bounds for visitors...But impressive structure shown here against the clear blue sky as a fine backdrop

Now this is a castle I want to see! It's architecture calls back to the gret castles of Europe, but the architecture is really playful, the curves and that amazing base on the right hand side. Beautiful idea to compose this in the same frame as the much more serious looking gothic pile to the left.
A perct angle, beautiful light and an enviable blue sky. Really nice post, I'm really pleased to have learned of this plAce.
Have a nice weekend
