Places of Interest
Luz de Tavira
The houses in Lux de Tavira have the traditional "platibandas" borders painted with geometrical or floral motifs, that frame walls, windowsand doorways - many of which are masterpieces of mortar work. The influence of the Art Nouveau decorative style, popular at the beginning of the century is apparent in the ornate chimneys rising from the roofs.
Main church - Built inthe 16th century much of the original structure has survived to the present day. The imposing Renaissance porch takes up
large part of tha main facade. The roofs of the three naves are hidden by an original and highly decorative ensemble made up of one semi-circular and two
triangular pediments. A statue of Nossa Senhora da Luz (our Lady of the Light) stands in a niche. There is a very ornate side porch in the Manueline style with columns carved in the shape of twisted ropes, a typically nautical motif. On the walls of the church there are four stone rosettes, interpreted as symbols of the sun, moon and stars.
A short way away stands the Chapel of Nossa Senhora do Livramento (Our Lady of the Liberation) (18th century ) the exterior of which is plain and slightly bizarre. Its altar is in the baroque style.
