Seaside Shrine

Where is this colorful seaside shrine? Bonus points if you can name the religon as well.

Welcome to Travel Photo Contest Friday. If you’re a new friend, each week I post a beautiful picture (at least I think so) from my travels and you guess where it is. The first person to guess where this picture was taken (Country, and Religion Religion) will win a link back to their blog with the anchor text of their choice in this post (keep it clean and relevant).

Leave your guess and recent post in the comment section below. Last week Jasmine was the first to guess the location of these Disdainful Statues, although most others knew exactly where it was too.

This week’s photo has some clues if you are observant. Good luck and I’m looking forward to your guesses and commentary!

I will also stumble and review the latest post of anyone who leaves a comment even if the winner has already been picked (up until next Thursday). I’m a bit behind on the Stumbles and reviews as I’m swamped with work at the moment, but don’t worry I always get you in the end. Yes, the prizes heavily favor the blogging and travel geeks amongst us. If you don’t have a website, then leave your favorite website or better yet a charity that deserves attention.

Good luck!

Guesses aside, all comments are welcome!

    Well, “gruta” is Portuguese for groto or cave. So, one might first think Portugal, but I think that’s going to be too easy. However, that’s not the only country where Portuguese is spoken. And if you look waaaaaaay back at the lower right of the photo, you’ll see a statue on top of the hill overlooking the sea. I’ve not been there, but I’m going to take a guess that this might possibly be the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio De Janeiro. So my guess for country is Brazil.

    As for religion, don’t think it’s Catholic because of the odd shaped cross at the upper right of the shrine. Looks more like something I’ve seen on Greek (Eastern) Orthodox shrines (which is my official guess here). Otherwise, er, Santeria…?

    Gruta Meti. That phrase itches at my head, but I don’t know why.

    I’m going to say East Timor, Catholic.

    I don’t know have a clue but I will guess Australia. I believe it to definitely be in the Pacific but I don’t know the context of the clues I see to give a better guess.
