"Hermitage of Nossa Senhora do Pé da Cruz" Nossa Senhora do Pe da Cruz - Church Tip by Willettsworld

 
 

Located on a small square towards the east of the city centre, this church dates back to 1640 when it used to be located on the city's outskirts. In 1659 it was protected by a bulwarked enclosure. It was renovated in the 18th century and a chapel with an image of Our Lady Foot of the Cross and the Holy Souls was built at the back of the church.
