Alminhas de Portugal

Alminhas da Beira Alta

As alminhas são padrões de culto das almas do purgatório, hoje consideradas património artístico-religioso. São pequenos altares onde se pára um momento para deixar uma oração e, por vezes uma esmola pelas almas. É frequente encontrar velas e lamparina acesas, deixadas pelas pessoas que passam no local, ou mesmo oferendas de flores.

Não são conhecidos registos escritos destes memoriais antes do século XIX, no entanto, podem encontrar-se exemplares de alminhas que remontam ao século XVIII. Formalmente, este painéis representam sempre as almas do purgatório em agonia, podendo representar anjos, São Miguel, a Virgem, Cristo ou Santos resgatando as almas.
Geralmente, as alminhas são erguidas em encruzilhadas, quase sempre em caminhos rurais, em matas ou perto de cursos de água, na entrada das pontes. Também é possível encontrar alminhas junto às estradas nacionais. As alminhas podem ser incrustadas em velhos muros ou na frontaria de casas e podem ser construídas em diversos materiais.

Aos diferentes estilos de alminhas pode se dar o nome de:

colunas de granito
capelinhas
nichos
estelas

Um painel pintado a óleo, ou de azulejo, representa as almas do purgatório. No distrito de Aveiro as aras votivas eram chamadas de "alminhas dos mouros" ou "almas dos mouros".

Thanks for your contribution, Barra ...

Even I don´t have any relation to religion, I like to see the Alminhas especially if they are integrated into the Muros de pedra. It makes them a unique part of local culture ...

Small pormenores of local identity which shouldn´t be overlooked ...

there are Alminhas practically around the country. They mean the things described above AND also the people who died in certain places, sometimes people build alminhas where a dear one was killed, for example, in an accident. Beautiful ones in stone above
