  • The six chapels with 66 figures carved by Aleijadinho and painted by Ataíde, are just below the Basilica of Bom Jesus de Matosinhos and report the way of the cross of Jesus Christ. Life-size sculptures are made in Cedar and protected within the chapels or steps. Are they, in the lower part the most high: Step, Step supper, Garden Step from prison, Falgelação step and Coronation of thorns, Step of the ascent to Calvary and Step of the crucifixion. These are beautiful and detailed set designs of the 18th century of the passion of Christ. It is very exciting to visit them!
