Artist's Description

For those who travel to Viana do Castelo, this is the owner of the mountain, the “king of the hill”. Everywhere from the city or nearby you can see this Catholic Temple in honour to Saint Luzia. The construction works started in 1903 and only ended in 1943 and took 3 architects in separated phases of it’s construction. Nevertheless, the Basilica was opened to pilgrims and visitors in 1926.

The building combines many different architectural styles, among them neo-romantic, neo-gothic and Byzantine and counts as well with a balcony at the top for an amazing panoramic view and a carillon with 26 bells. If you ever go to this city, you cannot miss this!
