Santo Aleixo da Restauração village (in the Alentejo) by night - The 26th of August 2016

We reached Santo Aleixo da Restauração in the late evening but we still ventured into the narrow streets that led to the Church, which ended up being the first glimpse of the forthcoming festivities.
The village streets were lit up with colouful iluminated decorations and so was the church. Quite a few people were to be seen sitting around the street Cafés and a rather significant number  inside the church, bearing in mind the size of the village and the fact that it was already fairly late. 
The 16th century Church with its guilded altarpiece looked interesting but I decided I would be back the following day to hopefully visit it thoroughly and take some pictures.
