I've already posted several photos of Juromenha and its church, devoted to Our Lady of Loreto, but I've never shown it inside, so here we can see what's left of it! This is the Church devoted to Nossa Senhora do Loreto, situated within the walls of the Fortress of Juromenha ( a village in the Alentejo). This fortress is situated very close to the Guadiana River and to Spain and what we see today date from several different periods. It has played an important role along its history, especially during the Moorish period. Withing the walls, we can still find the ruins of three churches, including this one,dating from the 13th century and devoted to Nossa Senhora do Loreto.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Une belle photo d'atmosphère qui nous montre l'usure du temps à cet endroit. Un beau cadrage vertical qui va donne de l'ampleur.J'aime la gestion de la lumière.

Olá Ana, estou planejando visitar Portugal em 2015, mas devo fazer um roteiro mais básico incluindo Lisboa, Coimbra, Porto e Povoa de Varzim (cidade de meu bisavo por parte de mãe). Evora pelo que vi fica mais para o centro do pais e deve então ficar para outra viagem.
Linda foto dessa relíquia arquitetônicas.

Uma luz muito especial banhando a cena, dá uma boa idéia do lugar, mostrando todas as texturas de parede, como o tempo tem permeado todos os cantos. Muito bom trabalho, eu gosto.

il luogo è assai suggestivo e la tua ripresa perfetta ne ha evidenziato molto bene questo aspetto con l'aiuto di una illuminazione particolarmente efficace, che hai saputo utilizzare nella migliore delle maniere.
Peccato che la suggestione del luogo venga rovinata dalla presenza di scritte sul muro che evidenziano il vandalismo di visitatori ignoranti.
Splendidi i colori ed eccezionale la nitidezza. Eccellente il contrasto-
Ciao e buona serata

What an incredible place. To look at these peeling and fading walls, is to look back through time itself. Even as I look at the fine column, from its intricate detail at the top, then scroll down to see the base having deteriorated, I can see how the most ornate place in the world will someday become no more than a pile of stones. There is amazing light in this place too, and the remaining blue colors on the walls are a lovely color touch.
Is that graffiti on the walls behind? I am not sure what it actually says, so it could equally be architects or archeologists marks.
Beautiful historic sight, brimming with atmosphere of times past.
All the best

Hello Ana - A beautiful detail study. Texture, colour and ambient light all contribute to the very well captured and conveyed atmosphere of this location. I like the quietness of this shot very much. Warm regards rosemary

wonderful indoor photo.
the side lighting is actually very sweet and well exposed. It's as if you have a stage hand off to the right holding up a light for you :)
I'm a big fan of these textured type of photos.
well done on the inside.

Brilliant detailed photo of the ruins. I like your light management which has brought out the details of these ruins so nicely. From whatever we can see of what is remaining one can say that this place was a grand one in its heydays. Thanks for sharing a nice old place.

Good angle and perfect light capture, ideal sharpness too, well made, interesting subject.

Looking at what left in this interior I am pretty sure that this must be a beautiful church in the past. So sad that it is currently in such a poor conditions. Anyway, you did a great job with light management and composition to achieve a nice moody view. Like it! TFS!

this is a fascinating photo of the interior of the ruined church. The way you illuminated this intriguing and melancholic setting of abandonment and decay is admirable. Depth and clarity are stunning and a lovely play of light highlights details and textures and guides our glance around the frame. The shadows are suggestive. Signs of the glorious past and evidence of irreversible decay mingle in such an evocative and captivating way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
