... never finished. Flanking the entrance are 14th century sculptured Apostles. There is sculpture of a pregnant Mary. It was sculpted out of marble and then painted. It removed from the chapel at the beginning of the 1500s by papal degree barring images of pregnant Mary.

On the way back to the train station, we passed by University ...

Eventually they would dissolve into the dust and we’d have to reroute. Finally we found pavement again and a drove past wheat farms, orchards, and microscopic villages before arriving at the large town (population 8500) of Moura.
