Santuário de São Bento da Porta Aberta

Santuário de São Bento da Porta Aberta


There are very few surviving documents that allow us to reconstruct the history of this sanctuary built in homage to St. Benedict. According to the testimony of Tomé Pires, from 1640, the sanctuary dates from the 17th century.

The high altar is dedicated to St. Benedict, whose life is also depicted in the historiated azulejos in the chancel.

There are pilgrimages to the sanctuary on 20 and 21 March, 10 and 11 July and 10 and 15 August. The saint has been worshipped since the mid-18th century, when the church was known only as the chapel of St. Benedict.
