Chapel of Our Lady of Penha

Fieldset:

Founded in 1622 by Portuguese sailors that had escaped capture during a Dutch invasion attempt in Macau, the Chapel of Our Lady of Penha came to serve as a shrine for mariners about to embark on dangerous voyages. The entire structure was rebuilt in 1837, complete with its distinctive bell tower, which can be seen from anywhere in the harbor, and from which visitors can see all the way across the Pearl River into China.
