Next on our photo tour is the tiny town of Querenca. Virtually empty when we visited it is an oasis of white and blue tranquility.
It features the Church of Nossa Senhora da Assunçãoa in the village centre that was specially opened up for us.
White and blue are a typical motif to be found all around the village.
While inside the unassuming church you can find a wealth of religious details and artifacts.
The sleepy little town comes alive each year with a traditional chorizo festival ‘Festa das Chouriças’.
It’s in honour of São Luís, the local patron saint of animals, and combines traditional gastronomy with religious customs.
We head to some more hidden villages next!
