No doubt the best time of the year to visit this chapel is during the St. Gonçalinho festivities, beginning of January. Apart from that period, the church is interesting for the signs of locals’ devotion and also for being well located, next to the city’s channels, restaurants and bars. Enjoy!

This is an amazing chapel with a huge local history: every year on the first Sunday in January, locals will fill this area where people go to pay promises that they have made the previous year. Depending on what they promise, they throw a huge giant Cavaca (a kind of cookie) from the top of the chapel and smash them in the ground. The ancient say it bring good luck if you pick and eat the pieces that fall on the floor.
This tradition started during the black plague as way for the rich to give food to the poor with less risk of catching the disease. How? By throwing the food from the top of the chapel away from people that could carry the the lethal plague.

Small chapel in an excellent position, on a quiet and pleasant central square, found closed, but also from the outside worth seeing even just quickly.
