Capela da Senhora do Resgate

Main Façade


Senhora do Resgate Chapel is a small  temple of simple facade, built in 1696, encrusted on houses of Rua da Bandeira, next to Praça da República. It was owned by the Brotherhood of Shoemakers, founded in 1620, and here definitely established since 1698.

Inside, you can revere the old images of St. Crispim and St. Crispiniano (patrons of Shoemakers), Santa Rita Cassia and, in the chancel stands out the very expressive image of the Madonna with the dead Child, in other words, Senhora do Resgate. There you can still admire some other curiosities of sacred art.
