Santa Catarina Things to Do

    If you approach Santa Catarina from the west, you may stop in the descent, in a clearly visble sightseeing point one kilometre distant, from where you may enjoy the nice agricultural landscape that surrounds the village. It is also a picnic area.

    Adjacent to the church there's a small but nice garden. It's a good place for pictures, and, being in a marriage, the official photographers (and us) took good advantage of it.

    I went there to join a couple of friends in their marriage.

    It has a nice altar, but I couldn't read anything about it. So far...

    Yes I did! It comes from the 16th century, in Manueline style with Baroque details. The altar, of course...

    One kilometer west of Santa Catarina there's a sightseeing point well equiped for a picnic, even if you want to grill something in place. The place is sometimes windy, but the views are nice.

Santa Catarina Off The Beaten Path

    Excuse-me for some emotion, but only now I saw this simple monument in my neighbour Santa Catarina. I was there several times, followed the garden by the church, but never noticed, until now, this statue. It was a shock to find that, in such a small town, five men were killed in the war where I've been... without any casualty.

    Five men here, plus three in my Turquel, plus a few thousands elsewhere... I was lucky!
