  • If you do not pass by there paying close attention won't know what hit you. The cave is "surrounded" by a grid and has only one plate. Does not yield or a nice picture. Worth a visit just for historical sake.

  • Cave where the Convento Nossa Senhora da Penha. It is said that a historical picture of our Lady of joy was placed at this location, and after 3 times away for showing up on the Hill, decided to build a place to house the picture, because they believed that it was there that the Saint wanted to stay. The painting until today is the Church of the Convent.
