Sobreiro, Old Typical Portuguese Village - recreation ground (1)
Since half a century now, José Franco, an old potter and ceramic artist from Sobreiro (Mafra / Ericeira region) has been building this fantastic recreation ground where models of houses from the referred region and all main characteristic artisans of old villages and respective shops and tools were recreated, sometimes in full scale (as in this picture), othertimes in miniature.

Ester, Salvatore, Mona Lisa, Demetrius Chryssikos and 3 other people have particularly liked this photo

O que é admirável é a persistência e o puro empirismo do José Franco e seus colaboradores ao longo destes anos todos, na realização da aldeia. Talvez não saibas que ele ainda é vivo (87 anos, parece-me) e vai aparecendo para a fotografia. Obrigado pelo voto, Anamaria!

Ich mag diese Häuser. Hier hat man immer den Eindruck, dass sie ein ganz anderes Weiß haben als hier in Deutschland. Dann finde ich auch die Farben immer wieder überwältigend!
Sorry, wenn ich heute nur in deutsch schreibe.

Thanks for your comment, Anne. I can always understand your German through the Google translator. The white and blue are very currently used in typical old Portuguese houses. The light-coloured walls reflect the hot sunbeams.
