To heaven…

Another wedding to attend… another church…another picture!

This pic is a vertical panorama of 4 shots. I moved the final output to Lightroom and played around with the presets out there and I liked what I saw!

Our Lady of Piety Church, Divar

This church at Divar is magnificent. With ornately carved pillars, a spacious interior, and sunbeams pouring in from every window, it did feel heavenly!

Brief history:

The original chapel of Piedade, already existing in 1541, was rebuilt in 1625 and made into a parish church, dedicated to Nossa Senhora de Piedade (Our Lady of Piety). The construction of the present vaulted church began in 1700 and was completed in 1724.
