Meetings - The Agramonte cemetery in Porto was created in 1855, to bury victims of a cholera epidemic. For many years it was used merely as a burial ground. But in the 1870's it changed face and status, when it began to accept monuments. It became the favorite cemetery of the city by the end of the 19th century.

Jubilation - Locals prepare the decoration of the Válega church, to celebrate the jubilation on the priest.

The interior is also amazing, with an exotic wood ceiling and wonderful tiles covering the walls.  Válega is located near the town of Ovar and easy enough to reach from Porto.
