Something that really caught my eye while in Portugal was the amazingly expressive and varied ferro forjado (portuguese for wrought iron, y’know) on doors, windows and balconies, so here’s a selection of fine specimens, spotted in Lisbon, Aveiro and Porto. I hope you enjoy these exuberant and expressive lines as much as I have.
It’s not just about the super curly-wurly, either. Simple ferro forjado wins too (especially when shadows get involved)!
If you like this kind of thing, take a look at my Grilles & Gates of Lisbon post from last year too.
