Milagres, three centuries of devotion
At Milagres, Municipality of Leiria, an imposing church arises at a small hill.
Founded in the 18th century to honor a miracle attributed to Jesus Christ which would have resulted in the healing of a paralytic, the Sanctuary of the Lord Jesus of Milagres keeps attracting thousands of pilgrims, the highpoint being its famous procession. A
century ago, in Portugal, this cult was only surpassed by that of the Sanctuary of Fátima.
