Lady of the rocks...

By Chinga
The little Chapel of "Nossa Senhora da Rocha" is on the promontory overlooking the beach of the same name in Algarve Portugal. "Nossa Senhora da Rocha" (Our Lady of the Rocks) with it's beach, and several hotels and low rise apartments spreading over the cliffs. This is a very small chapel on the cliffs (probably dating from 15th/16th centuries) above the beach within the remains of a fort. (It has glass doors so that you can look in even when it is locked - it really is tiny!) From here you get amazing good views of Armação de Pêra and along the coast to Albufeira and there are also a couple of places to stop for refreshments after all the sightseeing!

What a terrific set of images, and the two of the electric fittings show how everyday things that we might want to exclude from our pictures can provide such stunning shots.
Please accept my UA for this set

A very big set for me Isabel, so interesting; in some elements very close to Aegean islands atmosphere; makes me understand the Alvaro Siza roots architecture.
