The Cathedral of Silves, classified as National Monument since 1922, reopens doors already on the 17th of this month, after a long shutdown period for maintenance and restoration that began eight months ago but the need for which had been since 2006.
At the time, the parish began to limit the scope of the tiny cult area of ribbed vaults of stone, where apparently there was no danger of falling from the roof, which caused embarrassment in the achievement of the celebrations and limited the number of participants. Later the same cathedral was closed entirely and the celebrations of the Eucharist had to be transferred to the chapel of the parish complex in front of the Gothic cathedral.
Budgeted at 350,000 euros, the works were supported by patrons like the businessman Vasco Pereira Coutinho and the Aga Khan Foundation to the Ministry of Culture gave a contribution of 100,000 euros.
