Guimarães, Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Oliveira

Die Kirche Unserer Lieben Frau von Oliveira (Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Oliveira) geht auf das 10. Jahrhundert zurück, als sie ursprünglich von Mumadona Dias, der Gräfin von Portugal, als Kloster gegründet wurde. Die ursprüngliche Struktur wurde im Laufe der Zeit durch Kriege und Invasionen stark beschädigt. Im späten 14. Jahrhundert wurde es unter König João I. wieder aufgebaut, nachdem er versprochen hatte, es im Falle eines Sieges gegen Kastilien in der Schlacht von Aljubarrota wieder aufzubauen. Seitdem steht dieses prächtige Bauwerk inmitten der sich wandelnden Zeiten und ist Zeuge unzähliger historischer Ereignisse.

Never On Sunday Saw this young woman at the cathedral on top of the hill, and then again here in the commercial plaza at the bottom. Just standing, in both places, late morning on a Thursday, where groups of mostly elderly tourists could see her. Took a discrete photo each time. She didn’t notice, or at least didn’t respond. 
Yes, I wondered.
No, I didn’t ask.
Not worth posting, really, but I like to alternate images with portrait and landscape orientation.

Stairway to Heaven Sanctuary of Our Lady of Remedies, where a spring at the top of the hill was reported to be a source of miracle cures. 
Yes, I need a miracle cure.
No, I took a bus to the top, and then down here.
Yes, I did visit the fountain.
No, I don’t believe in miracles.
Yes, of course I drank from the fountain.
