LAMEGO Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios

On one of the hills of Lamego is the monumental baroque Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios (the Shrine of Remedies). A marvelous granite staircase decorated with tiles, allegorical fountains, small chapels, and statues leads to a baroque church with views over the town. The long stairway of 686 steps going up the hill, rises from the town center and pilgrims routinely make the climb.
