Mystic Cave

This strange chapel of the 17 century dedicated to St. Margaret, is in a cave of Arrábida Mountain by the sea. It was an important place of pilgrimage today abandoned. When the Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen visited this place, wrote: "It is a vast cave of stalactites in the clear ocean waters, his greatness beyond all description ... Constitutes a true church of rock, with its fantastic dome, organ pipes, columns and altars. "


Esta estranha capela do séc. XVII dedicada a Santa Margarida, fica numa gruta da Serra da Arrábida junto ao mar. Foi um importante local de peregrinação hoje abandonado. Quando o escritor dinamarquês Hans Christian Andersen a visitou, escreveu: «É uma vasta caverna de estalactites sob as claras águas do oceano; a sua grandiosidade excede toda a descrição... Constitui uma verdadeira igreja de rocha, com sua cúpula fantástica, tubos de órgão, colunas e altares».
