Architecture and house martins in Portugal

This 2014 video is about Cabanas de Tavira.

Wednesday, 11 April 2012.

Cacela Velha is not the only town in Portugal with architecture interesting enough to photograph.

There is also Cabanas de Tavira, more to the west along the Atlantic coast.

Some buildings are new, some are old. Some are in good health, some in bad health.

Tiles, not just for floors, but for walls as well, are typical for much architecture in Portugal.

Customers do not drink on the roof here.

Under the balcony of one “For Sale” building, two house martin couples had done their own architecture.
