Ermida de Nossa Senhora da Rocha (Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Rocha (Our Lady of the Rock)

Lagoa

Built on top of a cliff where there was once a military fortress, the chapel has some quite old features although the present building was built at the end of the 15th or beginning of the 16th century, as seems to be suggested by the octagonal cupola and the narthex on the façade, where a column with a Visigothic capital can also be seen.

On the inside, the most important feature is an interesting 16th century statue of Our Lady with Child, as well as a Mannerist altarpiece.
