Pomares Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 12 photos

Sao Bento dos Pomares consists on a small chapel in the middle of a cork trees field. Again this is very normal for this region where if you drive for a while you'll be able to find a large number of small chappels like this one lost in the middle of the fileds. In this region in a 35km distance you have at least 3 of this lost in field chapels. This one, Sao Bento dos Pomares, one in Monte de São João, near Portel, and another one near Torre dos Coelheiros.

The chapel

This chapel is lost in the field. To get there you have to pass a farm, ask permission to the owners and pass mud and dirt road. You have to open and close catle gates, and finally after a while you get to the chapel complex. This is a big pity to see a wonderful spot like this lost and getting all ruined by time.

Farm animals

Chickens, horses, donkeys, cows, turkeys, ducks... To pass to the chapel you have to pass a farm which have all the farm animals you can imagine.
