This is the altar of the little church of São Bartolomeu. Built in the 14th century, it was rebuilt in the 16th century and later redecorated in baroque style. The beautiful altar dates from that period and a detail I really like is the statue of Saint Bartholomew, on the left side. At his feet, the Saint has what seems to be a monkey but it is in fact the devil that he keeps arrested with a chain.

Olá otra vez Ana,
No entiendo como se valoran tanto algunas imágenes que para mi gusto no están muy bien ejecutadas, y esta esta tan poco comentada.
Es una toma interior muy bien realizada, con una nitided,luz y encuadre perfectos, mi querida amiga.
Gracias por tus interesantes notas.

This altar is very beautiful due to its unique design and numbers of sculptures and decorations. Like the way you captured it with great sense of the symmetry and superb sharpness. Well done!

very interesting altar, I like watching the symbols in those old alters there are always so many details to discover there. Amazing amount of gold or at least a golden paint :) Interesting style too.
Thanks for sharing it,

The sharpness is great, revealing all the intricate details of this ornate decoration. Colors are lovely and POV is just right.

lindo altar barroco. realmente a primeira coisa que me chamou a atenção foi a figura daquele demônio preso aos pés do santo. linda a qualidade da luz e da imagem aqui.
