The Hermitage

Hermitage de S. Pedro do Campo - Tendais - Cinfães

An extensive plateau, where here and there grow gorse and ferns comes the Chapel of S. Pedro do Campo.

The origin of the chapel there are no records, but in the early eighteenth century already here, where he stopped a medieval road, it was in the fair Tendais being likely that at that time the chapel existed.

Due to the purity of its air served this place also to treat tuberculosis, and the house next to the chapel, construction of the nineteenth century served as a shelter for sick or casual travelers, as well for cult support.
