  • You get to the shrine along a road in the National Park of Peneda-Gerâs amid the peace of a fantastic landscape. The sanctuary is a place of local devotion, built in memory of an apparition that took place centuries ago but the building is seven-nineteenth century. Bella the final steps, the chapels and the scenery with rock looming. Believers or not, the environment alone is well worth the visit

  • In this very remote place in a small valley within the Nationpark of Peneda in the Northern Portugese mountains you can enjoy the calmness and a very fancy architecture of the stairways to heaven. ;D ...  more »

  • É um sítio muito bonito com uma paisagem bonito. A própria capela é bonita. Pena ser um local tão distante de tudo com um caminho longo e sinuoso até lá. Se optar ir, vale a pena pela beleza mas vá abastecido com depósito cheio e dinheiro vivo porque não há terminais MB. O restaurante tem MB mas é um sítio muito caro e com espero demorada
  • Peaceful
  • the lost places from portugal.
  • Fairytale grounds
  • Bonito Santuário construído entre os finais do séc. XVIII e o terceiro quartel do séc. XIX. A igreja foi terminada em 1875. Frente à igreja encontra-se o escadório das virtudes, com estátuas representando a Fé, Esperança, Caridade e Glória, datado de 1854, obra do mestre Francisco Luís Barreiros. Após um largo triangular onde se situam os antigos dormitórios para os peregrinos (hoje transformados num hotel), o santuário desenvolve-se numa alameda arborizada em escadaria, com cerca de 300 metros e 20 capelas, com cenas da vida de Cristo (Natividade e Paixão). Uma das capelas ostenta uma inscrição que atesta ter ela sido oferecida pelo negus da Etiópia. Ao fundo da alameda, numa praça circular, situa-se um pilar oferecido pela rainha D. Maria I.
