  • Preciosa Iglesia, me gusta muchísimo la piedra que utilizan en la nave principal y los decorados con azulejos azul y blanco son una belleza, la sala de los huesos no me gusta tanto me resulta muy tetrica, hay algunos monasterios que también las tienen pero no entiendo por que hacer algo así. Felicitaciones por esta fantástica presentación. Gracias, Pilar

  • João Lourenço Rebelo, or João Soares Rebelo (1610 – 16 November 1665) was the only Portuguese composer to adopt the Venetian polychoral style. Despite his closeness to the king John IV of Portugal (1603–1656), and despite what is traditionally said, Rebelo never held any office in the royal household.
