In the Land of the Sunset Spires – Roofs and Skylights in Braga, Portugal

A Crowning Sunset

In this land of gentle rolling hills, castle battlements, aerials and strange, delicately beautiful, glassy spires meet under a glowing orange sunset sky. I wonder what tales they can tell.

Looking out of the hotel room at sunset in Braga in Portugal, I saw an intriguing sight. The sun setting behind the hills in Braga, Portugal, gave me these glorious and strangely evocative rooftop scenes.

Historic portuguese townhouses have interestingly shaped skylights and here the glass cones and the other geometric shapes plus the multitude of somewhat crazy looking antenna combined with the battlements of a castle tower created an arresting skyline. I found the delicate, metal crown-like skylight with stained glass insets especially beautiful.
