Beautiful. Portuguese churches have a very characteristic style of their own. Many times they use stucco of different colors for the walls while the main architectural details (cornices, columns, window frames, etc.) retain their natural rock color. Also, I have observed that lots of attention is paid to symmetry and to belltowers. About the latter, I have observed a characteristic undulating pattern at the top that might even recall a connection to the sea. Very interesting.

The interior of the above church is beautiful.
