Portugal, particularly Lagos, is one of my most favourite places to visit. These photographs are taken mainly in Lagos but also other areas in south western Algarve and Lisbon.

chapel | lagos

chapel | lagos

Chapel of St. John the Baptist in Lagos, Portugal. According to a plaque in the porch, which however has disappeared, the Chapel was built in 1174. However, the oldest reference to its existence date is 1325. In 1536 John III gives orders that every year, on July 24, to take place here a Mass assisted by the local nobility. In August 1573 the chapel was visited by King D. Sebastian. Severely damaged in the Earthquake of 1755 it was rebuilt in 1805 and has undergone several changes. It was again damaged in the 1969 Earthquake and was later repaired.

Sculpture by António Alonso, using oil barrels, which has spread throughout the town of Lagos from the main exhibition at the Cultural Centre ... This piece is being shown at the old slave market, a sad part of the history of Lagos. Lagos´ slave market, built in 1444, was Europe’s first slave market. It was here during the 15th century where the first slaves, captured and transported from Africa, were sold. Many Africans were dispersed throughout Europe, bringing a considerable income to the Portuguese monarchy and merchant classes, as well as a cheap labour force.

The Cais das Colunas (or the Columns Pier) owes its name to the two pillars erected at the waterfront of Praça do Comércio or Terreiro do Paço, a work by the architect Eugénio dos Santos, held during Lisbon’s reconstruction after the earthquake of 1755. These columns, which end the marble staircase leading down to the Tagus River, are of Masonic inspiration, representing the two pillars of Solomon’s Temple (Wisdom and Devotion).

Elevador de Santa Justa in Lisbon - Portugal ... 'One of the city's best-loved landmarks and also known as the "Elevator of Carmo," this extraordinary structure was built at the turn of the century by the Portugal-born French architect Raoul de Mesnier du Ponsard (an apprentice of Gustave Eiffel, explaining the structure's similarities to Paris' Eiffel Tower), to connect downtown to Bairro Alto (the lowest and highest points of the city). Originally powered by steam, it is 45 meters (147ft) high, and remains an interesting example of post-Eiffel iron architecture. The top of the Neo-Gothic tower, reached via a spiral staircase, has a cafe with splendid views of the city, including over Rossio Square, the castle and the river.'

'The legend behind the iconic status of the brightly coloured cockerel in Portugal concerns a Galician pilgrim on his pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela who was sentenced to hang after being falsely accused of theft as he rested in Barcleos. In a last minute appeal to the judge, who was enjoying dinner at the time, the condemned man made a bold statement: If this claim of innocence was true, the roasted rooster on the judge's plate would get up and crow. Suddenly, a gorgeous scarlet-plumed cockerel rose from the plate, crowing loud and long. Needless to say the judge pardoned the pilgrim.' LeedsFlickrGroup TOTW #160 'Repetition'...

"Inspired by the Buddy Bears exhibition in Berlin in 2002, Karl Heinz Stock has coordinated the works of a team of sculptors and artists of the Algarve to develop his own Dance of the Bears show.
