Photographer's Note

Couldn’t resist posting another photo of Nossa Senhora de Guadalupe, last one for now. Have a nice weekend!

The Chapel of Nossa Senhora de Guadalupe dates from the beginning of the 16th century and it's Mudéjar style. It's a very simple place, without much decoration, as you can see, a real country chapel. I guess that's what makes it so special, at least to me.
The devotion to Nossa Senhora de Guadalupe came from Spain and now She is the patron saint of Serpa and every year, during Easter, there's a pilgrimage and big celebrations, with processions. It seems that this strong devotion has even started much time before the construction of the chapel.
It's situated on the top of a hill, in the countryside, not far from Serpa.
