"Alminhas" (Little Souls) are panels painted by the people, with prayers for the deliverance of souls. There are two groups of "alminhas": one is, in general, for the Purgatory souls, and the other is mainly for victims of violent death ("alminhas" who were murdered, etc.) We find paintings of "Alminhas" on monumental crosses, niches, oratories, church money boxes, on flags used in processions, chapels, etc.
