More splendor and elegance. A glimpse of heaven.

The ceilings are each a unique masterwork of art.

Portuguese churches are very beautiful and they seem to have character. Most of them do look portugese!

By the way, the towns in general seem very well preserved. God, I love Portugal!

They truly are and truly do. Every country somehow found its unique way of creating variants to the original architectural styles. Portugal is no exception.

I'm glad you love Portugal. It is a beautiful land that deserves to be loved!
