Old church among strong colours

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Rui Lopes, Aug 19, 2009.

  1. While driving through a small country road I found this church. Immediately, I felt the need to stop and take a picture because of the strong and nice colours surrounding it:

    As a side note, the church was built back in the XV century and is located at Figueiró dos Vinhos, Portugal.

  11. Lovely shot Rui. I really like the visual design and colors and it was very nice from you to also giving us a little bit of history.
    Hopefully I will be traveling to Palma in October, which I could not do last year as planned because of the hurricane season. I hope to stop in Portugal and spend a few days there.

    Very nice contrast in the colors. Strong picture.

    BTW 'Figueiró dos Vinhos'. Vinhos means wine, doesn't it? Is this then a church dedicated to winemakers or dedicated to a saint who is protector of the wine?
     
  14. Thanks. You´ll be welcome for sure!:smile:

    Thanks, Alex.

    You are right - vinhos is the portuguese word to wine. About "Figueiró" I am not sure what it means. However, I believe that the whole name is due to the existence of many vineyards in that region.
