Just walked past this mess, down the hill from hotel Colina do Mar where some might remember the road subsided a while back. Well this time it looks like an earthquake. More likely though something has been leaking for ages and eventually...

That blue pipe is HDPE watermain. Subsidence could shift the fittings and cause a leak alright.

Probably earth tremors caused by the dancing going on in the new Havana bar...

Men at work this morning. Rua dos Arcos is also cordoned off.

None really. They have certainly been there 20 years if not more. A typical example of property speculation, financial mismanagement and then collapse. After all this time they are probably beyond redemption. A real eyesore for anyone who bothers to look up from the tacky shops and bars on the ground floor.

Back to reality the hole is now more or less filled in but the roads are still closed waiting for the lorryload of cobblestones to be relaid.

It's getting like Blackburn Lancashire.

Before T'Rovers had money, they had a dirt car park that was like the surface of the moon. I said to the attendant "Are these the 4000 holes then?".

He looked at me totally blank... LOL

They'll be fixing a hole where the rain gets in, I suppose. Hmmm
