REALLY OLD PORTUGUESE STUFF

São Pedro das Águias near Tabuaço, Douro. Facing the river Távora, in front of steep cliffs stands this little Romanesque church with ancient hermit caves around. The entry is so close to the cold rock that it is impossible to photograph. Decorated with monsters and allegorical animals, which keep chaos out of the inner peace inside. Except for this, the details throughout are of bare simplicity and express minimalist functionality.
