The Chapel is located between the Lighthouse of Leça da Palmeira and Praia Azul and takes the place of an old Franciscan Monastery that used to exist here. The Boa Nova Chapel has always been closely linked to the population of Leça da Palmeira and fishermen, because the patron was celebrated here, with lively popular festivities.
Built on the rocks, the Chapel of Boa Nova, is to the north of Casa do Chá with the same name, designed by the architect Álvaro Siza Vieira.
Praia Azul or Praia da Conchinha, as it is also called, is located next to the marginal avenue, which makes access easier and provides several types of support infrastructure.
The sea, which is almost always very rough, offers good conditions for the practice of sports such as surfing or bodyboarding, but requires bathers some care.
I hope you enjoyed this new trip!!!
