Santuário de Nossa Senhora da Penha
Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora da Penha
The Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora da Penha, the patron saint of the city of Grândola, is a 17th century building with a very simple exterior but highly interesting 18th-century azulejo panels inside.
The festivities of the patron saint are held on the last Sunday in May, and date back to the remote past. The statue is taken in a procession from the Sanctuary to the parish church, where it remains until the end of the celebrations.
