Geocache Description:


Capela da Luz Eterna

Trata-se de uma capela mortuária, que pela sua originalidade e arrojo será sem dúvida uma referência arquitetónica nos Açores.

Trata-se dum projecto do arquiteto Bernardo Rodrigues, natural de Ponta Garça  e premiado internacionalmente que tem obras em vários países como os Estados Unidos da América, China, Japão, Dubai e Portugal (incluindo Açores).

A capela tem dois níveis, uma pequena sala e casa de banho em baixo e a capela em cima. Uma primeira pirâmide invertida de betão sustenta uma segunda feita de aço. A pedra mármore de cor verde da Guatemala cobre as paredes exteriores, com zinco no telhado. As paredes prateadas do interior refletem a luz filtrada das aberturas.

Ponta Garça é uma freguesia rural, açoriana, do concelho de Vila Franca do Campo, com 31,38 km² de área e 3 547 habitantes.
