Convento de Nossa Senhora da Orada

This former convent was built in a Valley once desert and it lies the chapel of Nossa Senhora da Orada (formerly called Hermitage). The enormous devotion to our Lady on the part of many local fishermen is demonstrated by the amount of "ex-votos" found in the chapel of the Convent and that illustrate the miracles that occurred through his intercession. In the churchyard are two graves of victims of the constitutional struggles of the 19th century.
