We were walking along the boadwalk and in the distance was what looked like a magic castle with a bride and groom on the steps surrounded by surf and beach as we got closer the Sun shone down on this lovely couple and my husband took some breathtaking shot- a must see if you are in the area

Rated one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe there is this chapel sat on rocks in the middle right on the sea edge.

Has an aura about it stood there with waves crashing on the rocks.

Worth a visit if passing but didn't see much else that would attract us to the area otherwise.

This is the most beautiful beach in Porto area!
It's a romantic and magical place where many couples go on their marriage day to take photos.
When the sea level rise, the church is surrounding by the sea.

Nice place to visit, especially with bad weather, to see waves hitting the chapel. In the summer you can also be there.

The views of the chapel and from the chapel are simply amazing! The inside itself its small but beautiful, not what I was expecting based on the outside. The weather was very confusing lol the sun was burning hot but the breeze was freezing cold lol but I definitely loved it!

Small beautiful Christian chapel set in a cliff on the beach of Miramar. At high tide, especially in the Winter, it is often isolated from the land by the sea that surrounds it. Clearly worth a visit, especially at sunrise or sunset. Easily accessible (about 15 minutes) from the center of Porto by train (S. Bento station), exit at Miramar station and then just a short walk to the beach. Related to witchcraft that supposedly occur in its neighborhood. At the rear there is a mark on the stone similar to an ox footprint to which they attribute many fanciful explanations, one attributed to the foot of the meek ox allegedly that comforted Jesus in the manger.

This intriguing little chapel, hexagonal in shape, is built on a rock almost in the sea. Chapel was built in 1686 and underwent restoration in 1996. The chapel is magic in it's location, but also the pagan history of the place adds to this feeling. Around the chapel we found several melted candles and some not so melted portrayed as small of heads. This is related to ceremonies that occur today on full moon nights. Also this chapel has experienced almost 350 years with rough weather and huge crashing waves. Still there is little or no sign of this. Interior is sparse but lovely with altar in gilded woodwork of Rococo style.

This is a beautiful chapel right on a beach. The artwork inside is gorgeous and it's very inspiring to be right there on the beach where the surf is crashing all around.

Fabulous church in the water , surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and able to be visited in the dry sea . Fantastic stones in the sand and very nice to sit down there and relax . At the sunset a very nice picture can be taken .
