It was Easter and we have a ritual of going to a natural spring before sunrise and drinking the holy water from it. Since both Jo and I like the spring and the location of Pomburpa, we headed there. I had not noticed it earlier, but close to the spring, is the beautiful church of Salvador do Mundo church or The Savior of the World church. On our way back from Pomburpa spring, we stopped at the church.
It was constructed in 1565 in Serula in Bardez. Perched on a slight height, the church overlooks the river and fields in front.
The designa dn detailing of the architecture is perfect, neither too ornate nor too bland.
It had three bays and three stories high. It has been beautifully restored and is in excellent condition.
There are two octagonal towers on either side. The bell is hung in the centre, towering above both the towers.

The ceiling shows the craftsmanship used in the construction. It could have been a simple wooden frame. The brackets supporting the beams are beautifully carved. Trellis type wooden above the beams adds such pretty touch!
The colourful ceramic tile skirting on the walls adds an old world charm to the church.
Through the left side door from the church leads to a corridor, beyond which is a lovely and green central courtyard. This annexe holds the parish residence and other activities.
