Vintage plate 2018

The parish church of Rribeira Brava, built in the 16th century, displays its immaculate façade in the heart of the municipality. Detail its typical bell tower topped by a checkerboard pyramid topped by a globe (symbol of King Manuel I). Then go inside to see the works located under its barrel vault and Gothic arches: a Virgin and Child of Flemish origin, an elegant white and grey chapel decorated with a gilded wooden altar (17th century) and a Flemish altarpiece presenting the Adoration of the Magi (the original is kept in the Museum of Sacred Art).

Cette église mérite une visite. On y découvre que la diaspora a beaucoup contribué à garder en état cette église qui a déjà souffert des crues du torrent. A-t-elle souffert des crues récentes? je l'ignore mais c'est possible.

Cette église est de par son architecture l’un des plus belles de Madère, bien mis en valeur par son parvis noir et blanc. Elle est en tous cas typique est caractéristique des Igrejas de l’île. L’intérieur est intéressant, mais ne compte certes pas parmi les plus mémorables de Madère.
