Chapel of Senhora da Piedade or the Lady of the Mountain in Tomar

The Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Piedade in Tomar, also know as Hermitage of the Lady of the Mountain (Ermida da Senhora do Monte) is mentioned a few times in another topic of this site, dedicated to this place of worship. To reach this chapel you either drive or you go on foot and climb a flight of stairs with 286 steps. These photos were shot when I had just arrived at the top of a hill above the City of Tomar. This chapel was originally Manueline (14th century), built by order of a governor known as Alcaide de Óbidos but in the 17th century was remodeled in the baroque style.
