    NOSSA SENHORA DO CARMO CHURCH

    It has a small bone chapel made from 1.250 monks' skeletal remains!

    An inscription over the doorway translates to: "Stop here and think of the fate that will befall you".

    Creepy isn't?

    AZULEJOS IN F A R O

    by LysDor Written Feb 25, 2003

    Typically portuguese tiles are blue and white but multicolored are also used widely.

    The art of the Azulejos runs throughout the history of Portugal, and can be traced back to the Moors in the Middle Ages.

    In the previous VT format I used one Azulejos pattern to create the background on this page (not possible to view it anymore!!).
    I hope you can figure it out how nicely it came out on my page from the picture. It's a bit moorish-style isn't?

    When in Portugal I like to stroll around and admire *azulejos* that are found everywhere: on floors, inside churches, coveríng house walls like these emerald ones here on the picture...

    MOUNTAINS & PIRI PIRI

    by LysDor Updated Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Piri piri is a spicy condiment first brought to Portugal from Africa. It comes in a variety of forms - paste, oil and powder, and is hugely popular with residents and tourists alike. It is used in the ultimate Algarvean chicken piri piri dish.

    It is a must for every visitor. Don't go home without having tried it. All restaurants serve piri piri dishes but the best place to really enjoy chicken piri piri is on Monchique mountain. .

    This church - well I think it's this one :-) - is the most lavishly adorned of Faro churches and it is also the spookiest.
