A chapel of love

located by the south shore of “lagoa das furnas” you can find the amazing neo-gothic chapel of our lady of the victories. built on basalt, tuff and stained glass windows, the chapel emerges in the limit between the lake and the dense green forest; always involved in great mystery, as the brume in the island.

it was an order of “josé do canto”, a local and important gentleman-farmer, in the 19th century, following a severe illness of his beloved wife. she unavoidably died and was buried there. later after his dead and by his wish, “josé do canto” was buried in the chapel next to his wife.
