WOBBLY CHURCH

Since we love all that is wobbly, here is a church which looks like a pudding in stone. The photo wasn’t altered in any way. The columns on the right-hand side are veering towards the right – but it’s all stable, like a giant frozen jelly. Apparently the deformation was caused by the Lisbon Earthquake of 1755, but it’s the main church at Vila Nova de Foz Côa, some 400 km away. Go figure.
The exterior is great too, as well as the ceiling which will get its own post.
