  detail of the bell tower
by call_me_rhia

It?s the first thing that caught my eye when entering Albufeira: I looked up and saw this strange wrought-iron structure on top of a bell tower. I later learned that it is considered the symbol of the city: it?s in Rua Bernardino de Sousa. Is it a church? I?m not sure. It surely looks like one? however I know that once the building used to be the country jail. Was it then turned into a church? I very much doubt so
