Photographer's Note

I don’t have any trips abroad planned in the foreseeable future but I do have plenty of photos taken in the past which I never presented on TrekEarth. In particular Tyro has provoked me with his recent reportage to come back to the photo archives from my trip to Portugal...

Info about the church from Portuguese Wikipedia translated with the help of Google Translate:

The Church of the Third Order of Our Lady of Mount Carmel or Igreja do Carmo (Carmelite Church) is one of the most important aesthetic manifestations of religious and artistic heritage of the Algarve region. It was founded in 1713 by Bishop António Pereira da Silva, who bought the land, and opened in 1719. Carmelite Father Fray Manuel da Conceição was responsible for the initial project. In mid-century the building underwent major renovation and additions, having destroyed the original facade. The new layout was designed by master mason Diogo Gonçalves in 1747. The works lasted until 1878 (notably with the construction of the towers of the facade).
