The Latin School in Swiss town of Brugg is three-story building, finished in a baroque style and completed around 1638-40, is also a part of the town’s defenses, with its back wall integrated into the town's defensive barrier.
The front façade is covered by a brilliant and rare humanistic mural of allegorical female figures representing theology and the seven liberal arts, grammar, rhetoric, logic, arithmetic, geometry, astronomy and music. The cartouches under the window ledges are adorned with Biblical dictums in German, Latin, Greek and Hebrew.
Brugg is a small town in the Swiss canton of Aargau. It is located at the confluence of the Reuss, Aare and Limmat Rivers, with the Aare flowing through the town’s old town. It is located approximately 16 km from the cantonal capital of Aarau; 28 km from Zurich and about 45 km from Basel.

You have captured the detail in this beautifully decorated façade to perfection. I like also the reflections and the presence of the girl, who brings the scene to life. Very good technical quality.

Good evening Miro,
The religious theme depicted on the wall, suit well the fact that it is a religious-studies school.
Yet, photojob done superbly and the young lady on side's is a bonus to the whole, added life to the scene.
Fine colors and light managed.

an elaborately decorated and very interesting façade, your tight frame gives it a graphical allure as well. The decoration surely aimed at declaring the prestige of the school and inspiring the students, while it provided a good narration to anyone stopping by to observe the building. Your presentation is exalted by great sharpness and attractive colours. The lady's presence adds interest and one of the most attractive features, for me, is the luminous reflections. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

The presence of the young woman is adding life to the scene. The point of view is allowing me to distinguish the details and the colours of the facade of the Latin School. The good luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.

A city I'm unfamiliar with, and now have good reason to put it on the list...what a beautiful facade! As a guy, I can't help but say it's once again made even more attractive with the inclusion of the woman we see here. :) I love everything about this buildings detailed exterior...the color, patterns, statues, textures, well...everything! One of the things that stands out are the varying reflections in the windows, adding an extra effect to the overall imagery. Great idea to fill the frame as you've done, garnering interest from side to side and top to bottom. Judging by the looks of it, this was probably a tough balancing act with the many different angles, but you managed a solid composition. Lovely presentation Miro! enjoy the new day. All the best.

La façade de ce bâtiment est magnifiquement décorée. La lumière permet d'en apprécier les détails et la couleur. Note intéressante. Bien fait.

Another nice facade of the Latin School.Nice colors and designs to observe.It would have been nice if the resolution was less than 1500 pixels as this image is too big to look at.I must request you to keep it within 1500 pixels and probably within 600 kb for easy look. The lady has a great presence on the screen.Take care and have a good day.

You're capturing well this architecture by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the Façade of Latin School with some art designs. It's so superb for the red decoration and female figures of Façade, and it's good color contrast with window frame. It looks like a tasteful architecture different from the modern insipid architectures.

Beautiful facade of the building with magnificent statues and paintings on the wall. Perfect placement of the girl in the frame who is adding life to the scene. Like this symmetrical and balanced view of the house. Well seen and taken. Thanks for sharing.

Another excellent find of a historic building and a good architectural record shot of an eye catching and classic facade. Your crop is comfortable allowing the eye to fully concentrate on the composition and this is just wonderful with the right treatments, The human touch finishes off handsomely. Delightful shot, Congrats, TFS

Curious reflections i windows.

Sensational POV, with full detail is superb facade, wonderful as are adorned windows and the space between them, to recreate an image in the details, the presence of the girl gives us great scale of the building.
Very pretty color, which gives a lot of life to the image.
A magnificent brightness management, sharpness also
is perfect for enjoying the details.
Very well seen and well taken.

Color contras is great and natural
