Frances, that must mean your favourite is my favourite - the fluted terracotta one with the spire on top? Something for us to a-'spire' to??

Jim, they're all really cool - thanks for the in-'spire'ation!

Great photos Jim - that must have been a fun project. I really enjoy the traditional chimney cap.

Here are two more.

There are many fancy designs for chimney cowls in the Algarve, here's an example below :



Apparently there is an old tradition of showing off your wealth through having the fanciest chimney possible!

That probably relates to chimney pots as well. I've seen some really nice ones but I'm guessing you have a lot of varieties in the UK.

Found another neat one....they used the curved roofing tile for the cap. First time I've seen that.

And another one I'll call "the cathedral" off a very old villa.

It started raining while I was baking today, which must have fired a few lazy neurons into action - and now I have a makeshift chimney roof made of two firebricks and one large floor tile.

Certainly not beautiful, but it works like a charm...
