STONE PORTALS

Gothic-Mannerist detailing in the cloisters of Amarante, where the roundel-bracket elements holding the ceiling ribs match the moldings of the door architraves, thereby attempting to fuse the two styles. A rope bead on the bottom of the cylindrical brackets denounces a timid flourish of Manueline.
