Last Sunday in September

Nossa Senhora do Cabo, Cabo Espichel, Setúbal, Lisboa, Portugal

In 1410, it is said, an old man and old woman from two different towns came to Cape Espichel, seven miles from Sesimbra, both having had revelations the Virgin would appear there. Together they saw her come from the ocean on a mule, and they found her statue on the tip of the Cape. In the 1700s an elaborate shrine complex with inns for pilgrims grew up on the site. The footprints of the mule (or of dinosaurs?) may still be seen on the rocks.
