Loulé

Built in the 18th century, this chapel with its simple architecture has, over the centuries, been a place a pilgrimage for devotees of Our Lady.

The most important aspects of the decoration on the inside of the chapel are the quality of the Rococo altarpiece and the statue of Nossa Senhora da Piedade (Our Lady of Piety) that can been seen there. This is an example of 17th century religious sculpture which, apart from its artistic value, also has enormous symbolic importance for the faithful of the municipality who organise an annual procession in honour of Nossa Senhora da Piedade, also known as the Sovereign Mother.
