São Miguel-O-Anjo Beacon-Chapel

The S. Miguel-O-Anjo Lighthouse Chapel was built in 1527 by D.Miguel da Silva who was prebendary of the monastery of Santo Tirso, to which the S. João da Foz estate belonged. The building, on the way to Foz do Douro, features a square shape and is one of the oldest lighthouses in Europe. Pay attention to the inscription on the south wall that states that the prelate 'donated some of his own land to raise enough funds to keep a bonfire burning perpetually in the tower.'
