Photographer's Note

This is the Chapel of S. Pedro that I've posted last year, also one of my favourites. The pov is not very different this time but it was taken on a different time of the day.
This church is situated a few kilometres far from Castro Verde and it was built in the 16th century in a popular mannerist style. Situated on the top of a hill, it can be seen from a distance. This place is also very special because it is said that it was here that the Battle of Ourique took place, in 1139. In this battle,a very important one, Afonso Henriques defeated the moors and started calling himself King of Portugal (he became then our first king). Behind this chapel there's a monument commemorating the event. I've posted some photos of it with my first photo
