Portugal is a Catholic country. I was fortunate to have a very liberal upbringing and my parents always left faith, or the lack of, to my own choices and believes. For me, a visit to a church is about enjoying the art and architecture and, in the summer, to cool down. It was fascinating to see people’s faith in action but also a bit unsettling to witness someone’s dispair. To leave this church and into the brightness outside was something I will always remember.
