Photographer's Note

According to the legend, Our Lady appeared here and the site became a place of pilgrimage that was visited a lot during the Middle Ages. The "Chapel of Memory" is built in the place where the Virgin appeared. Inside there are blue and white azulejos which tell the story of the Sanctuary.

The monument was built in 1715 on a 135m high cliff and it is known under the name of "Nossa Senhora's sanctuary do Cabo" or "Santuário da Pedra Mua". In the church there are altar pieces and paintings from the 18th century as well as the small statue of Our Lady do Cabo.

Today, this sanctuary is practically in ruins.
