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.// ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
