Igreja Matriz, the parish church. Built by John I in 1425, it is thought to have been completed in 1446. Over the centuries has undergone several transformations and expansions, so they have different styles - Romanesque, Gothic and neo-classical example is that of the Gothic portal surmounted by a rosette of the eighteenth century.

Hello Chris ,
The PP seems to be quite strong : I like the effect . The composition is great , with the bull in the FG . The tilt of the tower gives some dynamism to the picture .
Well done .

Good light management. The church is taken from the best angle. Excellent composition with beautiful inclusion of the bull under the leafless branches that have a splendid sky as a backdrop.
Best regards, Paul

We see a very nice statue of the bull in foreground, great artist.
Also a excellent image of the church built through John I.
Nice perspective and depth image.
Sharpness and clarity are lovely for look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

A well composed image with a pleasing balance to it. The wide angle lens has introduced some distortion but this is of little consequence. The image has good colour contrasts and sharpness.

Le cadrage est excellent et le grand angle utilisé donne de très bons résultats. Le toro ressemble à celui de Wall Street . La lumière est magnifique.
