There is an old Catholic church at the top of the Lapa steps. The main property gate was open, but the church gate was locked. There was a cute golden retriever dog that saw us and began barking. That drew the attention of a janitor who came over and opened the gate for us! He opened a door to a small chapel on the side of the main sanctuary. Although we couldn't see inside the main building, we were happy to see the beautiful chapel and were grateful for such a generous janitor.
Inside the small chapel:
"for your love, my only one adored, this 'claustro' I searched, austere and dumb and, finding you here, crucified, in you I found everything"
