Photographer's Note

The fishermen's chapel in Camara de Lobos was historically where the wives of fishermen would come and pray for their husbands while they were out on the dangerous waters. The interior is decorated with the life of Saint Anthony and his exploits while at sea.

Originating in 1420, by order of João Gonçalves Zarco the Chapel of Nossa Senhora dos Pescadores (Our Lady of Fishermen) was built by the port. In 1723, the small chapel in baroque style was completely remodelled, retaining the tower´s original style.
