Sanctuary of Our Lady of Cabo Espichel

Cabo Espichel

At the tip of the cape, near Sesimbra, a place of pilgrimage grew over the centuries, which at the beginning of the 18th century became a large sanctuary.

It fell into disuse, and today it is only used in some annual events in some nearby locations. Trying to give life to the place, a rehabilitation program was approved that foresees the use of part of the facilities for a hotel.
