Senhor dos Milagres Chapel is situated in the civil parish of Machico, namelly in Banda d'Além. Formerly, there was Christo Chapel, also known as Misericórdia Chapel. This was one of the first temples being raised in Madeira Island.
However, it got destructed by the river.
Ten years later, in 1813, local fishermen rebuilt it and renamed it Senhor dos Milagres Chapel.
