Nossa Senhora da Peneda Sanctuary

Nossa Senhora da Peneda Sanctuary

Peneda is one of the most beautiful mountain villages and is located half way between Lamas de Mouro and Soajo. Near a deep ravine, with view to a round mountain and a waterfall, Peneda offers a fascinating spectacle.

Nossa Senhora da Peneda Sanctuary was built between the end of the 18th century and mid 19th century; with its 300-metre stairway and 20 chapels depicting the life of Christ (Nativity and Passion), it is the centre of pilgrimage of Senhora da Peneda that takes place on the first week of September and where people gather at the square to witness the candle procession.
