Churches and Chapels

Almas Pobres Chapel

Legend has it that this chapel was built in 1781, by someone who escaped an attack in this place and thanked the souls in Purgatory for that fact.

This small chapel has only one painted carved altarpiece inside, which represents the Souls in Purgatory and claims the title of the smallest chapel in the world.

Registered on the tiles we can read – Alminhas – PNAM (Our Father Hail Mary), which corresponds to a prayerful supplication.
