It is said that the 2 buildings were built by brothers...one of which is dedicated to St. Christopher. The buildings have fallen into disrepair, but there appears to be some restoration starting.
I zeroed in on the carving on the face of this beautiful structure, because it is such an unusual rendition of St. Christopher. There are two lobsters and a fish at his feet. Where St. Christopher is the saint to protect the traveller, I assume this symbolizes protection for the fisherman or traveller at sea. There are also 3 little heads which peer out of his pouch at his waistline. I'm not sure if that is to symbolize his protection of children. (?)
I wanted to remember this depiction for my son, Christopher.
