Nossa Senhora do Rosário (Olhão, Portugal) was built in the 17th century. This is actually the rear of the church and in my opinion more interesting. The three arches that you see are secured with an iron grille which protects the chapel of Nossa Senhora dos Aflitos, where townswomen traditionally gathered to pray for their menfolk when there was a storm out at sea. Nowadays wax models of children and limbs sit amid candles as ex voto offerings for fertility and to cure ailments.
