Photographer's Note

Hello friends, plus a photo of Miramar Beach and the small chapel, with the sunset background, many of you already know this place for my pictures here is over a different view :)

Capela do Senhor da Pedra - Miramar

The Lord of the Stone Chapel is located in the parish in Gulpilhares, municipality of Vila Nova de Gaia, Oporto district and is located by the sea and is based on a rock.
History

It was built in the seventeenth century, of hexagonal plan with a main altar and two side altars and gilded Baroque / Rococo. It has diverse religious statuary, emphasizing the image of Christ crucified. The pilgrimage to the Lord of the Stone is one of the most typical of Vila Nova de Gaia and the parish of Gulpilhares is a party too old to be held annually on the beaches of Sr.Stone on Trinity Sunday and continues until Tuesday following Monday.
The origin of the worship of the Lord Christ in the Chapel of the Stone may have originated in ancient pagan worship of the naturalist, the pre-Christian peoples, whose gods were worshiped in nature, was subsequently converted to Christianity. The market next to the entrance of the chapel, is a tile panel, monochrome blue, with the following inscriptions:

Tile panel on the left:

"THE PLACE WHERE THIS RAISES THE LORD OF THE STONE CHAPEL is certainly the oldest place of worship HIM BEFORE THE PARISH TO CELEBRATE CHRIST BE PAGAN ALTAR"

Tile panel on the right:

"THE ORIGIN OF THE GROUP OF POPULATION Gulpilhares Reassemble the longest service as is well demonstrated by the archaeological remains NOTED THAT THIS REGION HAS BEEN FOUND"
