Saint, Our Mother of Penha. Many believers make pilgrimages to this site which is surrounded by a green haven of
forest. Due to its location between two large urban areas, it is also a very much sought-after leisure spot on
weekends and holidays. It is considered one of the main tourist attractions of the Brazilian Southeast state
of Esprito Santo.
Every year, there is an important celebration to the Saint when believers dedicate their miles praying and thanking
the Saint. Some travel from all over Brazil in order to get there.
The men usually start their walk from the Capital Vitoria and finish at the Convent in Vila Velha. The women also pay
their respects and walk from the closest Church (Santuario) up to the Convent. Inside the Convent there are
millions of Thank you Notes from people that claim to have been cured by Nossa Senhora da Penha. They have left
many of their notes along with their old handicapped chairs and much more. The view from the Convent is one of
