Our Lady of Guia Chapel - Portugal

Another interior of a church, this one much smaller than the Jerónimos Monastery church. 
Gracinha went on holidays to Algarve and sent me this card of this chapel in Guia, Albufeira.

According to evidence, this chapel precedes the 16th century, and was partially destroyed in the 1755 earthquake. It represents an important testimony of the Baroque Period in the Algarve and is considered one of the most important artistic monuments of the entire Albufeira council. The interior is lined with polychrome tiles that provide an appropriate backdrop to the 17th century image of the town’s patron saint. - in:
