PT RR - Group 72 * Churches

I've received 2 of these cards long time ago but i was waiting for the 3rd card to post them all together. Now that the 3rd arrived, here are them. The 1st card was sent by Tânea, the 2nd by Vitória and the last one, by Gisely from Brazil.

 Edição Casa das Estampas
The lovely Our lady of Peneda Sanctuary is located in Gavieira, 35 kms from Arco de Valdevez.
It was probably built in the end of the 18th century. It is believed that in this place a small chapel was built in order to remember the apparition of Our Lady of Peneda, which cult developed and motivated the construction of the sanctuary.
This worship place is constituted by the Virtue Stairway, with statues representing Faith, Charity and Glory, dated from 1854. The main church was finished in 1875.

This is the main church in Armação de Pêra, Algarve. It was inaugurated in 1960 and it was built thanks to the effort and contributions of the local population.

 These are 3 churches in Belo Horizonte, Our Lady of Lourdes, a gothic temple built in 1923; S. José Church built between 1902-1910, in manueline style with dutch influences and the neogothic Boa Viagem Basilica built between 1913-1932.
