Information
It dates back to the first half of the 17th century. It was a place of pilgrimage for the Tavirenses, especially on St Peter’s Day (29 June). The building denotes a great sobriety, composing the interior of single nave and small chancel, partially covered with 16th century tiles. The portal was replaced in the 19th century and features an insignia alluding to St. Peter. From the estate once existing in this hermitage, stand out the famous Panels of Santa Maria, a set of paintings on wood, of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, representing St. Peter, St. John the Baptist, St. Blaise and St. Vincent, coming from the mother church of Santa Maria. In the middle of the 20th century, Daquí left for a troubled restoration process at the José de Figueiredo Institute (Lisbon), later returning to the mother church of Santiago de Tavira, where they are currently located.
