Photographer's Note

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.
