Place of Worship

Our Catholic Church. Built in the 17th century by Portuguese Jesuits, it sits on top of a hill with a fantastic view over the coast and the Atlantic. It's dedicated to Nossa Senhora d'Ajuda who, during a severe drought that threatened the entire region, made water spring out from under the church. The fountain is still active, and people travel long distances to drink from it. 

Better contrasts in large.
