Santuário de Nossa Senhora da Encarnação

The Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora da Encarnação is a place of pilgrimage where many people goes in search of miracles. The first took place with Susana Dias who, supported by crutches, entered the chapel and laid down on the floor. At the moment of the elevation she wanted to kneel down, but in the end she got up, threw away her crutches and walked around the hermitage loudly proclaiming the miracle. It produced such a strong popular commotion that everyone helped in the construction of this Sanctuary of Senhora da Encarnação.
