This simple chapel, of Arabic origin, was Christianised and dedicated to Our Lady of Protection, also known as Our Lady of Milk, and she is depicted here on a screen behind the altar, nursing her baby. Pregnant women go to this place to receive her blessing. The Chapel of Nossa Senhora do Amparo was built in the style of the old Islamic marabouts and was restored 30 years ago, enhancing the region’s culture and heritage.
