Nossa Senhora do Livramento Church

The Nossa Senhora do Livramento Church is located in Achadas da Cruz, in Porto Moniz.
The church originated as a primitive chapel that was built in the 16th century. There are references from as early as 1548 to this chapel, which was built with the alms of the first settlers of the area, in honour of Nossa Senhora da Vera Cruz.
In 1848 the place became a parish and Nossa Senhora do Livramento was chosen as the patron saint of the church.
A new chapel was built in the same location and extended in the 20th century, which resulted in the church's current configuration.
