That looks amazing. Chimneys in the UK are always just practical and do not look that pretty.

I think here in the states they call those porticos.

Happened across your blog and I happen to be Portugese, maybe a coincidence, but I thought I would keep an eye out.

Hi Rachel, thanks for dropping by.
The chimneys here are amazing, and you can find different types. They are a regional symbol.
When you check Algarve guides, they appear as regional symbol, and the rooster as a national symbol.
I´m so happy I can share my culture in this space.
Cheers!

Hi Deb. Thanks for your visit and comment.
I´m very glad to meet you and that you came across my blog. I visited yours and found a very nice space. I will sure visit you more often. If you´re Portuguese maybe we can exchange comments in our language.
Abraço. Mizé.
