São Lourenço church - Almancil

 

The church of São Lourenço at Almancil, looks very simple and quite small from the outside.  It is still quite small inside, but the simplicity is gone and the full baroque splendour hits you.  The church is famous for the fact that the interior walls and ceilings are covered with the blue and white azulejos tiles.  Scanned print.

Fabulous place...you must feel you are inside a willow pattern tea-cup, Tom.
Tom Wilson: That just about sums it up, Ray!

It's hard to believe things like this actually exist, Tom. It's over-the-top ornate!
Tom Wilson: If you are ever down in the Algarve, Ginnie - it is worth a visit!
