Capela senhor da Pedra Miramar

It was built on a rock by the sea in 1686.
It is believed that the origin of the cult in the Chapel of Senhor da Pedra may have its origins in an ancient pagan cult, of a naturalistic nature, of pre-Christian peoples, whose deities were venerated in full nature, having subsequently been converted to Christianity.

It has a hexagonal plant. Internally it had a main altar and two side altarpieces of gilded wood in Baroque / Rococo style. It also has several religious statues, with emphasis on the image of Christ crucified
