Another volume has just been published from the Collection Promontoria Monográfica, the eighteenth volume, dedicated to the Altarpieces in the Northern Province: Baçaim, Damão and Diu: Retábulos na Província do Norte: Baçaim, Damão e Diu.

The current edition, the first of 2019, of the Collection Promontoria Monográfica, coordinated by Francisco Lameira (CIAC / UAlg) and Mónica Esteves Reis, traveled through the former Northern Province (territory about five times larger than Goa, of great economic importance between 1534 and 1739) where an important altarpiece legacy of Portuguese origin can still be found that this study proposes to address and catalog.

As in the later volumes of this collection, we can find two parts: one dedicated to the altarpieces still existing in the Patriarchate of Lisbon and a second part consisting of a catalog illustrated with color photographs of fifty altarpieces accompanied by a critical approach.

The Promontory Monographic History of Art Collection, which already has 18 volumes, is dedicated to the study and dissemination of altarpieces in the Portuguese World.
