Lovely wee chapel in a dramatic location

Instagram gold! Well worth a visit if you're in the area. It photographs beautifully and the waves crashing around it make it special.

I recomend a sunset visit in one day of clean sky. In summer, there are many people in this area. So, if you want a quiet visit, choose spring, autumn or winter

Chapel is beautiful! We spend few hours there. Beach is the best one near Porto. Clean, quite peaceful. Only 10-15 min from Porto.

Beautiful chapel, well worth a visit! However, the town is quite run down and there wasn't much open, you wouldn't really need more than an hour there at most so wouldn't make the trip especially!

The capela is very close to Porto and easily reached by a local train if you do not have a car. It is a beautiful place to visit all year round especially when the ocean is stormy: then it gets really spectacular!
