Para mim não passa de beleza arquitectural... construída com o sangue e o suor do povo, assim como os palácios...

Eu não nego a História e sempre gostei muito!
Sei bem o papel que as religiões tiveram na história da humanidade e os seus efeitos nefastos mas foi sempre uma área que me fascinou.
Mas a religião católica desempenhou um papel relevante na cultura europeia e esse facto eu também sei bem, Isabel

Claro que desempenhou, Judite, sem esses e os ricos não haveria monumentos, pinturas, etc. Mas o preço pago pelos que não tinham acesso ou pelos que discordavam foi terrívelmente elevado. Eu não posso esquecer o que os meus antepassados viveram por causa da dita religião, nem os maltratos na escola por não ser católica, a unica criança não batizada...

Azul y azulejos ... !
Although, like Isabel, I find no spiritual dimension in churches for myself, I can see how the POV here, as well as the azulejos blending with the blue sky, can work very well to suggest the idea of the church as a connection to "heaven" to those who have faith.
Have a nice Sunday, Judite!

Annalia,
As a child and adolescent my religious education was Catholic
Many years ago I stopped practicing it, but whenever I enter a church I can't erase that past
But even if I had been raised in an atheist environment, I would know, like you, how to separate art and religion, as it happens when I enter a temple of any other religion
Have a nice Sunday, too!

A really pretty church with some lovely architectural features, especially those gorgeous blue tiles (which happen to match the sky beautifully). I also like the weather vane.

An excellent image Judite.

Kirchen interessieren mich ganz besonders von der architektonischen Leistung, die oftmals Höchstleistungen zeigt. Ganz besonders wenn es alte Zeitzeugen sind.

Sono d'accordo con il titolo. Sono soprattutto importanti testimonianze dell'epoca in cui furono costruite.
