Known in the past as Mount Ajax, Mount Calvário is a sacred place par excellence, located in Gouveia. Jesuitical priests of Gouveia ordered the construction of Senhor do Calvário Chapel as recognition of divine protection during the 1755 earthquake. This is why this place is still so important nowadays. The Mount can be reached by the staircase that leads to the Chapel. There you will also find two tiny chapels depicting the stages of the Passion of Christ: Agony in the Garden and the Kiss of Judas.
