Nossa Senhora da Saúde Chapel

Tavira

Information

The charming Nossa Senhora da Saúde Chapel is situated at about 4km distance from Tavira, nearby the Senhora da Saúde small settlement, right in the heart of the Algarve.

This is a rural temple, with an uncertain construction date, all the same it is probably a temple with ancient origins, with a tradition of cattle and agricultural protection.
Nevertheless it is known that already in 1448 the friars from the missionary order of Saint Paul the Apostle were installed here, moving in 1606 to the Nossa Senhora da Ajuda Convent, in Tavira.

Every year in May, the ancient tradition of devotion to Our Lady is retaken, and a Procession takes place, congregating a large number of visitors and locals.
