Route 3: “Senhora da Rocha: the legend and the locale”
The Municipality of Lagoa has created a series of themed walking routes that follow a historical narrative: Performative Heritage Routes. With the geography of the county and its urban landscapes forming the basis, the routes take participants on a journey through theatre and music, exploring four different locations. A true trip back in time on routes that explore the area’s origins, showcasing how Lagoa has evolved over the last two and a half centuries.
Route 3: Senhora da Rocha (Porches) is a place of character and mystique, culminating in a hermitage erected on a promontory, which is one of the most remote manifestations of monotheistic religiosity in the region, a singularity alluded to in “Senhora da Rocha: the legend and the local”.
