Portugal, is frequently encountered along the roads and paths, "Alminhas".
These small altars representing religious scene, often tiles, but also painting,
used to light a candle and leave a little prayer, or an offering of flowers.
When I was little, my Grand Mother told me that it allowed to be forgiven the sins of the day.

Beautiful Azulejos taken under shadows that created a wonderful effect.
Nice included the leaves in green, added extra verity of tones to the whole.
With your permission I will add this to my Azulejos theme.
