Capela de Santo Amaro, Lisboa  This chapel was founded in 1549 in dedication to St. Maurus. It’s one of the greatest artistic curiosities in the city, but seems to have become completely forgotten. It’s almost always closed, opening only for Mass once a month (on the first Sunday). It was believed that St. Maurus healed broken legs and arms, so many of the magnificent 17th-century polychrome tiles that decorate the entrance walls illustrate those limbs.
