The Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Monte (Church of Our Lady of the Monte) contains the grave of the Austrian Emperor Karl I of Habsburg. The church is also the destination of a procession that takes place every year on the 15th of August where the penitents climb up the 74 steps on their knees to redeem their promises or to beg for something for beloved ones.
