Chapel of Bom Jesus midway to the Chapel of Senhora da Piedade in Tomar

Until very recently I didn’t know the name of this small chapel which is located in the middle of the huge staircase that leads to the Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Piedade in Tomar. Now I know and it’s called Capelinha do Bom Jesus (Little Chapel of Good Jesus). I had tried to find its name before unsuccessfully, until and by chance I stumbled on an article on the newspaper O Templário, written on July 2011, about vandalism perpetrated against this chapel. Apparently some vandals broke into the chapel, destroyed the religious sculptures and carvings and then painted Satanic symbols on the walls.

This is the little Chapel of Bom Jesus midway the huge staircase leading to the Chapel of Senhora da Piedade in Tomar. The views from here are just outstanding and I took a moment to enjoy the landscape and shoot a few more photos

A small chapel in Tomar called Capelinha do Bom Jesus, located midway the 286 steps staircase, when I was going to Senhora da Piedade Chapel. It's a really small chapel and I doubt it that more than two people can fit there at the same time
