3325 – House Of The Beaks I

Lisbon’s Casa dos Bicos is a Renaissance building from 1523 with a peculiar facade.

Remember Ferrara and its Palazzo dei Diamanti? It’s the same kind of facade here, roughly from the same time, only it’s not diamonds, it’s beaks. OK, admitted, the “beaks” protrude even further, so maybe the naming makes sense 🙂
