OCTAGONAL DOMED FOLLY

Palácio dos Biscaínhos (17th century), Braga. In plaster and stone, this folly is hidden in a quiet corner of the gardens, and remains cool and damp inside, great for Summer hideouts. Its interior is pure architecture – the square plan transforms into octagon dome via semi-circular arches.
