Capela do GirõesA forgotten treasure
Capela do Girões
The chapel in the Nature Spa was crafted in the 17th century, and it holds a unique place in the world of Portuguese sacred art. It was commissioned by a member of the Order of Santiago, and the iconography makes reference to arcane mysteries. This exquisite chapel is a portal into an ancient past where the power of the feminine mystery was honoured, and it will provide spiritual inspiration to all, regardless of creed or denomination.
Amongst the thirty eight ceiling panels, this capela contains a sequence of icons depicting the education of the child Jesus by the angels. This is very rare, and very exciting to have the opportunity to restore them.Rui Araujo
