Photographer's Note

This is my second post of Our Lady of the Snows, a very simple little church, situated a few kilometres from the village of Amieira, not far from Portel. This church was first built in the 13th century but then it was destroyed and rebuilt in the 16th century. After that, several works have been made. Sometime ago it used to be all white, now I found it blue and white. Right on the right side of the church, we have the waters of the Alqueva, the biggest artificial lake in Europe. With its construction, the church is now very close to the water. On the left side, with the same blue&white colours, we have the wall of the cemetery of the village.
