Pestana's Chapel #1

© All Rights Reserved

As I said yesterday, new Gargoyles are to be shown now. These ones were “born”, almost half millennium after the ones from Monastery of Batalha. Sometimes people have the idea that Gargoyles are always very old, typically from Gothic period. But we have to remember that architecture works like art, in circles. These Gargoyles are from a neo-gothic Chapel in Porto, from the end of 19th century. Private Chapel of a Palace from the Pestana’s family also called: Chapel of The Holy Heart of Jesus.
