Right on the top of the promontory: The "Ermida da Memória" connected to D. Fuas Roupinho legend, very well known in Portugal
The legend tells that the Alcalde of Porto de Mós’ Castle, who was hunting a deer in a foggy morning, in September 1182, found himself on the edge of the precipice and, seeing the danger, pledged for the Virgin’s help. The horse stopped frozen in the air, saving the nobleman’s life. In thanksgiving D. Fuas Roupinho built the Memory Chapel, near the miracle point.
