Church of Nossa Senhora das Neves

Fafe
Description

Our Lady of Neves, where they "remove the devil", is one of the leading and most symbolic pilgrimages in the municipality of Fafe and the entire Minho. The first references to the cult of our Lady of Neves start at the beginning of the 18th century (1706), in Portuguese Corografia of Priest Carvalho.

Every year, on the last Friday of August, traditionally, thousands of devotees especially from the North, go up to Lagoa, with the purpose of putting the image of our Lady of Neves on the head top, believing they will be delivered from evil. The gesture of putting the little saint on head top works as exorcism, or in popular saying of those that do this, it is to "remove the devil".
