Chapel of Nª. Srª. do Pé da Cruz

In The Process of Classification - Monument of Public Interest 

  

Located in Pé da Cruz square, formerly known as Poço dos Cântaros.

Construction is estimated to have begun in 1644, according to the date inscribed on the main portal.

Around 1660 it was included in the 17th century enclosure, after the Spanish Rule.

The facade was modified in the 18th century, the corner stones were replaced and the pediment renovated with mortar.

The oratory, in the building’s rear, displays scenes from the Passion of the Christ and dates back to the third quarter of this century.

On the inside it features beautiful collections of Baroque paintings and sculptures.
