Being aware of the immensity of the religious culture in Portugal, I have to admit that I was disappointed by this Shrine. It is underwhelming and it looks like there is no wish whatsoever to invite pilgrims (or just curious minds) inside. On the plus...More

Shrine of Nossa Senhora da Piedade was constructed in the early 18th century and is a small chapel with Baroque alter and frescoes depicting scenes from the bible. Unhappily this fine little chapel is juxtaposed with a ghastly, modern, utilitarian creation which looks like a...More
