Faith - that's what helped Dom Fuas Roupinho to escape a tragic fate on a foggy morning, when he was hunting. He was focused on pursuing a deer, and he only realised he was on top of a cliff when the fall seemed inevitable. At the last moment, he cried out for Our Lady of Nazaré. iraculously, his horse stood on its hind legs (engraved there ever since) and the prey, which was the devil after all, vanished. he man was rescued by the intervention of Our Lady, whose image was hidden in a small cave nearby. Shortly after, he ordered the construction of a chapel at the top of the cliff, to place this image, which is still venerated in Nazaré.
