Ermida, Alentejo

O Alentejo está salpicado de antigas ermidas que nasceram de ainda mais antigas mesquitas muçulmanas. Esta aguarela foi pintada para um dos meus bons amigos Portugueses e Alentejanos, aqui em Memphis (onde os Portugueses escassam).

The Province of Alentejo has many scattered Chapels that were converted from old Arab Mosques dating from hundreds of years ago when the Iberian Peninsula was occupied by the Moors. This was painted for a local Portuguese friend here in Memphis where you can count the Portuguese community with the fingers of your hand.
