Photographer's Note

Another view of the Church of Santiago in Tavira, Portugal.

Located in the old part of the town, this is a medieval church built during the second half of the 13th century.

The church has a single nave with a chancel and a number of side chapels. It has a collection of carved altarpieces of great quality as well as four 15th and 16th century paintings depicting St John the Baptist and São Pedro, São Vicente and São Brás.

The main façade is the outcome of the work that was done during the second half of the 18th century, as a direct consequence of the 1755 earthquake, and of special interest is the medallion with plasterwork representing São Tiago (St James) on horseback.
