Island Altars

Throughout the island there are many altars with statues of the Madonna tucked away in jungle and rural settings. This is one of the more elaborate ones--it's located in the Portuguese section of the cultural center in Iao Valley.

I immediately thought of France and Italy, which are filled with those roadside altars, and then you mentioned the Portugese section ;-)

I see them everywhere here too, especially in the South American homes.
