Nossa Senhora do Carmo Sanctuary


According to the legend, "one day, a hiker heading towards Braga saw an image on a boulder and decided to take it with her. The next morning it was vanished. She then returned to the place where she had found it and there was the image. Assuming it was a miracle, the locals decided to build a chapel that could shelter it... ". The only Mariano sanctuary of the county hosts, every year in July, the archpriest pilgrimage and is today a place of reference both for its religious importance and for the natural beauty of the surroundings. Over the last few years, it has undergone several urban interventions in order to dignify this place of conviviality and prayer. Those who want to know more about this story can still do so in the Museu da Irmandade de Nossa Senhora do Carmo.
