Chapel of Our Lady of The Rock

Hotels near Chapel of Our Lady of The Rock, Albufeira, Portugal .

The once simple fishing village of Albufeira in the province of Algarve in Portugal is now a modern holidays resort with all facilities and establishments present for flocking tourists. But there are some attractions in the city that remains tranquil and sanctified and one of these is the Chapel of Our Lady of the Rock.

The Chapel of Our Lady of the Rock or Hermitage of Nossa Senhora da Rocha is a small and quiet chapel built on a narrow strip of rock on a cliff. The chapel overlooks a sea which is also named Senhora Da Rocha in its honor; bathers usually climb up to the chapel to have a magnificent view of the beach below and the surrounding white cliffs.

Chapel of Our Lady of the Rock is housed in a main church which was built in the 19th century but the chapel itself dates back in the 15th century. There used to be some fortifications that used to surround the chapel but they were all destroyed when an earthquake hit the place in 175.

The surrounding area of the chapel is very laid-back with fewer facilities like hotels or restaurants. For these establishments, it is wiser to proceed to the centre of Albufeira where tourists can find many collections of hotels, bars, restaurants, cafes and shops.
