Small and well preserved chapel with lovely views right across to Armacao de Pera and Gale with the Senora de Rocha beach on one side of the headland and the Pria Nova beach on the other.

Took a stroll here one evening as I had read about the chapel and it’s beautiful surroundings. We walked from our hotel (about 5 minutes away) and took a wonder around the chapel. It is such a lovely place. We didn’t go in the chapel...More
