Take the stairs up to see the Capelinha (Chapel) of São Vicente.

From the top of the mountain rises the Tower Chapel of Our Lady of Fatima right in the center of the São Vicente valley and visible to all who live there or who are just passing through. It is a small, rather unique, chapel-tower, built as a steep tower with rather simple façades and a very late revivalism. You can hear the tower bells at various times throughout the entire parish. It was built on the initiative of the population in 1948 as a way to celebrate the end of World War II, and on the path that gives it access there is a representation of the Via Sacra.

To get to the Chapel and the spectacular view it shares you drive up to Caminho da Capelinha, São Vicente, Portugal. You can park in the small lot on the side of the road. From there take the stairs to the Chapel and enjoy the beautiful São Vicente valley.
