The 2 Day trip to Figueira da Foz - Day 2 (morning) - Tamargueira bay, the old fortress, the Parish Church of Buarcos - The 24th of July 2016

Sunday's temperatures rose above the so called normal temperatures one is used to during this time of the year, so my brother and I decided not to go to the beach and head towards Tamargueira bay instead so as to visit the small Miseric√≥rdia chapel in Buarcos, a fishing village which stands as an extansion of Figueira da Foz and still pertains to its burrough.

We weren't able to visit the late 16th century chapel, said to only open during mass but did walk around the fortress, which is a bastion-like ensemble dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. Soon after, having heard the church bells of the parish Church we still managed to walk into it inbetween masses and take a few pictures.
