MM 4-29 View of Central Porto from the Porto Cathedral

The Porto Cathedral (Se do Porto) sits on a hill overlooking the River Douro to the south and west and central Porto to the north and east. I took this shot from the Cathedral Square (Terreiro da Se) looking north to the central city. It will be my entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge.

Some of the city’s most prominent buildings are in this shot. The tallest tower just left of center belongs to the city hall (Camara Municipal do Porto). The building on the right with the pyramidal steeple is Sao Bento, the city’s main railway station. The building with the pediment to the left of the railway station is St Anthony’s Church (Igreja de Santo Antonio dos Congregados). I ‘ll be showing more photos of all of these places during the next few weeks.

Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Drop by her website on Thursday (Wednesday in Europe and North America) to see what Leanne and other photographers from all over the world are doing in monochrome these days.
