The architects and designers and artists who created these magnificent churches have turned the ceilings into the dome of heaven.

It would be wonderful to worship there.

I love portuguese architecture. It's so unique and at the same time reminds me of the german and east european architecture, but with a iberian flavour. Nice job Johnny!

Limestone. The white stone arch on the inside is made of Ançã stone, a much softer stone and thus very easy to carve.

Yes, it is a local stone and was often used for the building of altars and other delicate ornaments such as the Porta Especiosa of Coimbra's Old Cathedral.
