Old Buildings around the World

This week’s challenge from CFFC are photos of old buildings, barns, sheds and houses. Here’s mine! I really look forward to Cee’s different challenges. Taking photos of old buildings is something I really enjoy and now I get a chance to show them off.

Beautiful green tiled house on the esplanade in Ribadesella, Spain. Built by a returning Spanish merchant from Cuba after he had made his fortune.

I love this quote I found on Pinterest!


  1. A great tour of buildings. I’m intrigued by the turf roof house in Iceland. Did you go inside? I wonder if the floor of the house is lower than ground level? Seems like it’d be a logical thing to do. Especially since all the Nordic folks I’ve ever met are very tall. 🙂

  2. Not many things more interesting than an old building are there? They have so much character and provide a real link from the past, definitely shouldn’t knock so many down. Great photos Ali.
