Traditions

   The legends help to understand and even justify the origin of something. Full of mysticism, they involve the imagination of those who hear, recreating this distant history.
   This parish has the Legend of Santa Maria das Virtudes. One day in the year 1403, appeared to a shepherd an image of Santa Maria, and since that, a small chapel on the site was brought up. As the miracles done by the Santa Maria Ademas were known, the number of pilgrims from all over the country, increased as did their devotion. Later, Prince D. Duarte changed the name, call it Santa Maria das Virtudes.

Patron Saint: Nossa Senhora do Rosário (Our Lady of the Rosary)
