  • 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.

  • According to that account, this cave was the first address of Br. Pedro Palaces, founder of the Convento da Penha. There's nothing special there-it's just a hollow between rocks, but it is interesting to take a look.
