    Ermida de S. Braz

    by johnsakura Updated Feb 28, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is a perfect spot to watch portuguese late gothic style of mudejar. Portuguese late gothic style had to branches: mudejar with arab influences which also appeard in southern Spain of course, and the Portuguese Manuelino, that comes after the name of the King in the Discoveries times.

    I took the picture from the part you ca't really see any surrounding buildings, i mean like churches inside the city walls usually have building right on the other side of the street. Here on this one you just have a wal on the back part like you can see on the picture and in the front part you this ugly construction of the Hotel D. Fernando...bahh! I didnt get it on the picture. I didnt want to scare you off of actually coming to visit this monument. hehehe

    Fondest memory: In the front part of this chapel there a road that heads to the Rossio art of town. This part is where once per month is held the fair where almost everything can be bought. From clothes to local regional food, groceries, chinese stuff, shoes you just name it. Great experience.

    Favorite thing: This old Ermida comes from the portuguese late gothic period. Portuguese mudejar.
    This chapel or "Ermida" is llocated in the Rossio of Évora which is located on the lower South part of the city after all the existing walls. You have to go down from the Main Square Praca do Giraldo in direction of the Public Garden or the S. Francisco Church. Its quite interesting this kind of construction here. It doesn't have any surrounding buildings which gives you a nique opportunity of enjoying its architecture.
    Inside it has wonderful green/white tiles that remember indeed arab influences like the ones you can actually found anywhere else that has a mosque.
