Photographer's Note

Just around the corner from my last picture of the Capela dos Ossos and facing the Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceição, is this interesting building in the small Algarve town of Alcantarilha.

I loved the deep burgundy colour of the walls and the bright blue of the architrave beneath the roofline as well as the evidence of years of decay which the walls and paintwork had suffered.

For those interested, this is actually the front façade of the Manor of the Mascarenhas Marreiros Leite and if you look at this map and drag the little yellow man down to the red cross, you can pan around and see this building as well as the church opposite to it.
