1h, 23min, 6.3 km (according to Google maps)

Our longest hike, just over 6 kilometres each way, but what a reward when you get there!! You will arrive at the a cave, in the shape of a shell, which rises over the chapel that appears suspended, due to a staircase on each side.

There is a rocky front where the chapel of Senhora da Estrela is, which is particularly high. At the top they built a lookout for the view; where the clear sky reaches the sea of Figueira da Foz.

The view towards the sea feeds the legend that a navigator was drifting out to sea and he promised to build a chapel for Our Lady if he was saved. Soon after, a star appeared in the firmament which guided him to earth.
