Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Cape, Cape Espechal.
Ermida da Memória
Perched at the very end of Cape Espechal (Cabo Espechal), not far from Sesimbra
in Portugal, is a tiny chapel that dates from the fourteenth century.
It is referred to online as a "Memory Chapel" or Ermida da Memória.
I can't find anything in English, so you'll have to make do with the - Portuguese Wikipedia pages -
There's a picture of the outside of the chapel within the Wikipedia article, so I thought I would share the inside with you. This was taken through a metal gate, using the on-camera flash because the interior of this little chapel was in deep shade. I guessed a suitable aperture because the camera wouldn't focus.
The marble slab is engraved with reference to "Imagem de N. Senhora do Caboa (Image of Our Lady of the Cape) - a vision?
The little chapel was an important place for pilgrims, but it wasn't until the eighteenth century that a more substantial church was built, with accommodation, but more about that another time.
(Ermida translates as
a "chapel or place of worship that has its own altar") edit
The legend of "Our Lady of the Cape" is briefly mentioned - here -"... many moons ago a brightly lit image of the Virgin would appear and save
sailors from shipwreck in storms. One such lucky soul sold all he owned
to build the chapel in her honour, where he would live the rest of his
days alone and requested that his crew visit his hermitage every year,
hence the annual pilgrimage which continued for many centuries.".
