Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Conceição in the City of Tomar in Portugal

The Chapel of Senhora da Conceição (Ermida de Nossa Senhora da Conceição) in Tomar, Portugal, started in 1535, led by the master of architecture João de Castilho, but after his death in 1553, Diogo de Torralta took over and he was the one who completed the work in 1573. This chapel is influenced by the cultural rebirth of the Renaissance in Italy, but it also presents Portuguese architectural elements, known as the Manueline Style. These are three of the many photos that I shot while I was there. You can also enjoy striking views of Tomar from this chapel.
