Text description provided by the architects. In the beginning of the year 2009 we were commissioned the Project of a Chapel honoring Santa Ana, in a small, triangular piece of land, in Sousanil, Santa Maria da Feira.

Visiting the site, we noticed that the given location of the Chapel was in the intersection of five streets/roads, and at the bottom corner of an ascending topography. We noticed also that this topographic condition was the perfect “stage” for celebrating Santa Ana’s festivities, occurring in July 26th every year, as locals already do.

The amphitheater shape of the site, allows exterior mass celebration were everyone has optimal visibility conditions, promoting their participation in the ceremonies.

This circumstance was the leading key for the entire project. The building to develop would materialize the edification of the bottom edge of this spontaneous sanctuary, improving the conditions for celebration along with the creation of a singular building capable of housing Santa Ana’s devotion.
