Capela do C

Hidden somewhere in the middle of a tree rich landscape this forgotten chapel is located. Approaching it from behind it looked like a simple bricked structure. But it turned out the front facade was a real treat.

What makes it unique is the architecture resembling the globalization of that time. On top of the facade, you can spot a Greek baptism cross. The shape of the dome is Arab-inspired and the rest of the facade a mixture of Baroque, Franco-Italian origins with some Portuguese feel.

This chapel in ruins was built somewhere in the 18th-century. It's faith turned around when it was separated from the public. At some point in history, it was privately owned by someone who didn't care much about maintaining it.

The inside was completely empty. Every wall showed enormous cracks leading from the bottom to the top of the structure. The walls showed many different colors. Together with the light entering the structure it resulted in an interesting presentation of the decay.
