Silence from the past / Silencio del pasado

Silence from the past / Silencio del pasado
Lisbon is not a noisy city. But, it may give that impression when one enters this place, these ruins of the Carmo Convent. Suddenly silence is created. What you only hear is one or two birds flying around. All else disappears. And this silence gets inside while walking along the nave.
Even in ruins, one gets peace out of it.

P.S.: Won't repost the picture, as I would delete the comments, and I respect them as much as the photograph itself. But, there is a version I like more at Flickr, so just in case you would like to see it, it is here:

Lisboa no es una ciudad ruidosa. Pero, podría dar esa impresión cuando uno entra en este sitio, estas ruinas del Convento do Carmo. De repente se crea el silencio. Lo único que se llega a oir es uno o dos pájaros volando alrededor. Todo lo demás desaparece. Y este silencio traspasa al interior al caminar por su nave.
Aún en ruinas, uno sale de aquí con paz.

P.D.: No cambiaré la foto, sobre todo porque borraría los comentarios y los respeto tanto como la foto misma. De todos modos, hay una versión que me gusta más, en Flickr. Así que, si la quieres ver, está aquí:

It is already a beautiful city (Lisbon), and somehow, this being almost the last thing I saw, really gave me peace. I felt I never wanted to leave!
