When you leave the capital of Sal Rei, it is no more than a 20-minute walk before you leave civilization behind you on Boa Vista. And then, in the middle of nowhere, you come across something you probably would not have expected there: a small chapel. The foundation stone for ‘Our Lady of Fatima’ was laid in the early 1920s. Today, a more modern version of the original stone chapel can be seen on a small rise and, with its white facade, it contrasts with red sand, black rocks and the Atlantic Ocean that you can hear loudly crashing onto the coastline.
