The Place


Check out this beautiful drone video of a hilltop hermitage in Portugal, compliments of AirVuz contributor Timeearth.  It's called the Sanctuary of Peninha, and it's located in the Sintra Mountains, west and a bit north of Lisbon.  Situated within the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, it sits on the site of a medieval sanctuary that dates to the 12th century AD and possibly earlier.  The main building on the site now is the Chapel of Nossa Senhora, which dates to the early 18th century; it's now complemented by a late 19th century mansion.
