WE NEED HELP TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS BUILDING IN CASTRO MARIM - BAESURIS: *what means this Vieira - Concha - Scallopshell on this building and why is it there? *Is there any connection with Caminhos de Santiago in the past and until when? If you have any information, please let us know; -Associacao Amigos do Caminho de Santiago do Este de Portugal(A.C.E.P.) -Email:baesurissantiago@live.com -http://walkingbaesurissantiago.blogspot.com //28.08.2015// -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Since September 2015 our Association has received several indications about this building in Castro Marim (which was for sale), corner Rua 25 de Abril – Rua de Sao Sebastiao, Main-Crossing near Câmara Municipal, showing the last memory of Caminho de Santiago in Castro Marim. This last “Vieira – Concha – Scallop-Shell” remembering that until November 1st, 11 a.m., 1755, Pilgrims following “O Caminho Tavirense”, passed through Castro Marim, trying to hire on a boat to sail up Guadiana River, direction Alcoutim, Mértola and further north, from there on foot along the River under protection of the Castles to Santiago de Compostela. About 20 years after the “Lisbon Earthquake” then Vila Real de Santo António was founded and Port-Facilities were constructed, 1774. So from about 1775 on, Pilgrims following the Algarve Coast, under protection of the Castles, walked by Faro, Livramento to Tavira, and from there to Conceição, Cacela Velha and Vila Real de Santo António, where they tried to hire on a boat for transport north by the River, following the same Route, “La Route des Chateaux”, Caminho do Este de Portugal, Caminho Tavirense. In the 19th Century Pilgrimming became that important for VRSA, that Vieiras were used in the façade of the First Hotel in the East Algarve, Hotel Guadiana in Vila Real de Santo António, now in restauration. Let us hope that the new “Owners” are intelligent enough to respect this Historical Heritage “the Vieiras” in the façade of the future new Hotel Guadiana.//31.10.2016.// ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Uma dezena de quilometros a leste de Tavira fica esta aldeia, no topo de uma colina donde se avista o extremo leste da Ria Formosa. Conquistada pelos cavaleiros de Santiago em 1249(?), é um povoado de ruas estreitas e casas caiadas, tendo ao fundo uma pequena fortaleza a vigiar a costa, e onde cheira amendoeira e laranjeira. Na parede de uma das casas, lê-se o poema de Sophia de Melo Breyner "As pracas-fortes foram conquistadas/ por seu poder e foram sitiadas/ As cidades do mar pela sua riqueza/ Porém Cacela/ Foi desejada só pela beleza". Para chegar a praia os veraneantes recorrem ao servico de barqueiros que os transportam numa rápida viagem através da ria. ---------------------------------------------------------------- *2018-Conceicao following yellow arrows direction Robinson Club, M-1242 to Ribeira do Junco, Cantinho Ria Formosa, to Cacela Velha passing "Fabrica" on your right(M-1242).

2019, Conceicao de Tavira, Part of First Stage Caminho de Santiago do Este de Portugal.

***2018/2019 After a long period the N-125 Bridge over Rio Almargem was opened for traffic and Pilgrims on foot and on bicycles(after at least 18 months). Next question what about "Caminho Route Bridge" south of Railroad, which can also not be used since last year 2018.??? -Our volunteers have marked with yellow arrows and stickers a detour, since last week again using the N-125 Bridge, passing in front of Hotel OZADI and Snack Bar O Vale, and returning to the original Caminho Route in Conceicao. --------------------------------------------------------------- 2015, Conceicao de Tavira, Link zur Ersten Etappe des Caminho Santiago Tavirense. Reopening historical link by Conceição de Tavira Pilgrims used this route already since the 14th Century, leaving from Tavira by Conceição to Cacela Velha, (by Altura) to Baesuris, (up) Guadiana River (by boat) to Alcoutim, Mértola, direction Chaves in the north, entering Spain to Santiago de Compostela, using Camino Santiago de Sevilla, Via de la Plata. Probably because of this route in the 16th Century was build the Mother Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceição (Ordem de Santiago).
