Capela S Gonçalo Amarante

São Gonçalo, the patron saint of Amarante, is reputedly specialized as a wedding facilitator for older women. In the beautiful church that bears his name, we found many crazy and delightful details and rooms – such as this one, a tiny little chapel under the altar. Completely built of wood (except for an encaustic tile floor), there is no surface left straight. Whether this is truly Baroque or some later confection, the church itself dates from the 16th c.

The ugly black bin serves as a deposit for carnations, which you have to tie together with a rose so that the Saint can fulfill your desire for love. Ex-votos cover the walls.
