Legends and Traditions: the pilgrimage Senhor de Cabeça Boa occurs in the 1st Sunday of May. Certain day, a Portuguese emigrant in Brazil was lost at sea and asked for the aid the Saint Christ, promising to build a temple to it if he was saved. Thus the chapel of Saint Christ was born, where the arrival of the Christianity to lands of Vera Cruz is celebrated. Other story says that in the darkest night, the lamp suspended in the chapel is sighted in the distant mountain ranges.
