This is the most beautiful beach in Porto area! It's a romantic and magical place where many couples go on their marriage day to take photos. When the sea level rise, the church is surrounding by the sea.

This is a beautiful chapel right on a beach. The artwork inside is gorgeous and it's very inspiring to be right there on the beach where the surf is crashing all around.
