Saint-Rita's Church



Three weeks ago, we posted the door and the front of the Saint-Ritas's Church. Today, we show the inside of this small baroque jewel.

Built in 1720 in baroque Jesuitical style, have five altars sculpted in the 18th century, and it still have, in the sacristy, the original image brought of Portugal at the begin of his construction.



Três semanas atrás, postamos aqui a porta e a fachada da Igreja de Santa Rita. Hoje, nós mostramos o interior desta pequena jóia barroca.

Construída em 1720 em estilo Barroco Jesuítico, tem cinco altares esculpidos no século 18, e tem ainda, na sacristia, a imagem original trazida de Portugal no início de sua construção.

  4. It's a beautiful church. Chile does not have many churches in that style since it wasn't too economically powerful during Colonial times.

Why?

What about the weather?

Who, where or when?

What?

We walk by the streets of our city and very often we don’t realize its images, which are there and which suddenly are not any more.

To photograph and glance is to guard images, impressions. It is also to re-discover the space where we live, our imaginary and scenario of our lives.

Our glance is not enough. It is necessary that others look what we see.

Andamos pelas ruas de nossa cidade e muitas vezes não percebemos suas imagens, que estão ali e que de repente não estão mais.

Fotografar e olhar é guardar imagens, impressões. É também redescobrir o espaço em que vivemos, nosso imaginário e cenário de nossas vidas.

Nosso olhar não basta. É preciso que outros olhem o que vemos.


Who see me?
