BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: CEILING

Paula at Lost in Translation presented us a challenge: the theme for this photo challenge in black and white is “ceiling”

This photo was taken at the Palácio da Bolsa (Stock Exchange Palace) is a historical building in Porto, Portugal. The palace was built in the 19th century by the city’s Commercial Association (Associação Comercial) in Neoclassical style. It is located in the Infante D. Henrique Square in the historical centre of Porto, designated World Heritage Site by UNESCO. (Wikipedia)

The Arab Room holds the highest prominence of all the rooms of the palace due, as the name implies, to nineteenth-century gold-stucco stuccoes with Arabic characters that fill the walls and ceiling of the room.
