NAIVE CHURCH PORTAL

FARO_PORTAL_01

FARO_PORTAL_02

A naively designed but immensely picturesque church portal in Faro. None of the architectural elements is tied together in an orthodox way, but the whole has enough charm to make for that, with volutes, pointy finials, a scalloped niche with statue and small pilasters whose cornice becomes the window sill! You can see the whole façade on the link below.

Igreja de São Pedro, Faro (2nd half of the 16th c.)
