Also known as Our Lady of Mercy Cruise. The cruise today known for the invocation of the Lady of the Guide would be formerly called the Lady of Piety, according to the representation of the Pietá figure. It draws attention to the detail in high relief where one cuts inverted scallop and the letters Alpha and Omega with a cross, this being a traditional variant of this Christian symbol. With a probable construction date in the 15TH/16TH centuries, its original location was equally distinctive, and it was raised, as it appears, next to the Feira field; Was later (from the EIGHTEENTH century) placed before one of the chaits of the Santos Passos, leaning against the wall cloth where stood the door of the Lady of Guia, from where she received the current denomination. It has been since the 30s of the last century, next to the Church of Our Lady of the Olive tree, in an angle protected by iron railing, in the proximity of the Alberto Sampaio Museum. Classified as National Monument since 1910.
Manueline Cruise. At the base of the cross, the image of the Virgin with the Lord dead in her arms, flanked by St. Mary Magdalene and St. John. At your feet, you see a knight in prayer
