Pontevedra – Capela da Peregrina

An impression from the Galician city of Pontevedra, taken in the light of the Blue Hour.

The photo shows a landmark of Pontevedra, the Capela da Virxe Peregrina.
The church is an important stop for pilgrims on the Portuguese Way of St. James (Caminho Português). Its unusual ground plan, which is supposed to represent a scallop shell, is remarkable.
