The legend of this chapel of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios
Shoot, you will kill it!

Legend: "When hunting, a nobleman was surprised by an enormous serpent living in the tick jungle that existed there. He was so afraid by such appearance that he climbed on a tree and possessed by a great fright invoked the aid of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios and praid with such a faith that the Lady heard him; he soundanly felt encouraged and carried the rifle with determination and fired on the horrific animal killing it immediately'.

The scene is now represented on a panel of tiles on the wall outside of the church of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios.
