Chimney pots

Looks like somebody recently replaced the chimney pots and their caps on this building. I've never seen a collection of such neat and clean chimney toppers. You can see some of the old style chimney pots, in orange terra-cotta, behind.

All shiny and new!

At this point our group was gathered back up and ushered down the stairs back into the church. We may have spent about fifteen or twenty minutes (at the most) up there. The whole tour from the beginning of the climb to the end was billed at forty-five minutes, but I didn't think to time it.

  1. Do you think the chimneys are for open fires?

  2. Very charming (the old and the new). In Sevilla, the most common sight on rooftops — TV antennas. NOT so charming.

  3. Those metal roofs look in good shape also.

  4. andrew, historically, I think, yes. Or for coal burning stoves. Considering when most of these buildings were built. I don't think they get much use any more.

    mitch, I know what you mean.

    evelyn, you're right. They must take very good care of them.

  5. I saw those but they were too far away for my lens. Yours must be formidable.
