Photographer's Note

This is an "alminha", one of many that can still be found in this mountain.
Alminhas are little shrines usually placed along the roads, where passers stop for a while, to pray for the souls and the dead people. There are several types and it's frequent to find candles there.
I found this one in one of the little streets of Talasnal, amost hidden by the grapes and the vines.
Last year I posted one of my favourite ones so far, one that I found in an abandoned little village of Góis, same mountain - this one.
