Santa Teresa

There is an old Catholic church at the top of the Lapa steps.  The main property gate was open, but the church gate was locked.  There was a cute golden retriever dog that saw us and began barking.  That drew the attention of a janitor who came over and opened the gate for us!  He opened a door to a small chapel on the side of the main sanctuary.  Although we couldn't see inside the main building, we were happy to see the beautiful chapel and were grateful for such a generous janitor.

Inside the small chapel:

"for your love, my only one adored, this 'claustro' I searched, austere and dumb and, finding you here, crucified, in you I found everything"
