Senhor dos Milagres Chapel


The chapel of Senhor dos Milagres (Lord of Miracles) in Machico is a baroque temple of vernacular architecture built on the site of the former Cristo Chapel (Misericórdia Chapel).
A few stones from the pointed arch portico and the remnants of a neo-manueline replica were preserved from the original chapel.
In the interior there is an image of Christ that had been washed out to sea and was "miraculously" found three days later.
Every year there is a great procession to the Milagres Chapel, which welcomes thousands of pilgrims to pay homage and offer their pledges in memory of the mudslide of 1803.
