SANCTUARY OF SENHORA DA GRAÇA ( OUR LADY OF GRACE))

by Antonio Gil February. 09, 2016 2283 views

One of the first Carmelite sanctuaries in Trás-os-Montes, Portugal, rebuilt in 1755. The building includes a bell tower and three chapels. The architectural design is dominated by granite constructions. A valuable collection of statues and paintings are contained within the interior.

Lovely set. I particularly love 3 and 4. You are wonderful at capturing and processing your skies and I love the detail you show us in the architecture.

The 3rd is my favorite, it reminds me of the village I was born in.

I love the vantage point from the bottom of the hill, looking upwards...and the perspective of the last one as well :)

I like the progression - closer and closer - like a pilgrimage.

Really like the 3rd one , but the first is nice too if you cropped out the foreground road IMHO.

I want to know what is reflecting the sun in the last one, seems a strange place to mount a plaque. I like the way you took us all up the hill and to an interesting building.
