Nossa Senhora da Penha Sanctuary

Castelo de Vide

Information

The Nossa Senhora da Penha Sanctuary is situated high in the São Paulo Mountain, over the lovely village of Castelo de Vide, considered to be one of the prettiest villages in the vast Alentejo region.

Built in the 16th century, this is a simple construction, with a lovely interior decorated with glazed tiles.

The access to the sanctuary is made by a long stairway that finishes right in the temple’s yard where in the 20th a lovely Pillory was placed.

From here the panorama is astonishing, over the Castelo de Vide village as well as all the natural and human surroundings, with a great part belonging to the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park. This pleasant space is completed with a snack park to better take advantage of this nice set.
