Ermida de Sant'Ana, São Bartolomeu de Messines

The chapel is located in a hilly countryside, about 5 km from São Bartolomeu de Messines. It was here, where in 1834 the famous Battle of Sant'Ana took place, with the glorious hero "Remexido". It can be assumed, that those bones, that were found by renovations, belong to these soldiers, who died in the fighting. Although it is not known, when the Ermida was built, it is certain, that she was already in 1758 an integral part of a farm, that had the same name. Currently,the chapel works as a spiritual center. The adjacent builtout building are used for spiritual gatherings and celebrations.
