The devotion to Our Lady of Good Remedy in Lamego goes back to 1564, when Bishop D. Manuel de Noronha ordered the rebuilding of a 14th-century chapel that stood where the Sanctuary is today. In 1738–9 the architect, Nicolau Nasoni, designed the Remedy Fountain for the Courtyard of the Kings. In 1750 the Sanctuary was designed by António Mendes Coutinho. The staircase took over 200 years to complete; the design was initially drawn up in 1777 and building continued from 1781 until 1969.The enormous staircase with 691 stairs crosses the hill to reach the Sanctuary. It has nine profusely decorated levels with pyramids and statues, namely the Courtyard of the Kings and some fountains. The balance and harmony of the church façade are due both to the pinnacled bell tower and to the sculptures crowning the pediment. The framed windows of the façade are decorated with garlands. In the centre of the façade the entrance is decorated with vegetal elements and is surmounted by a niche hosting the image of Our Lady of Remedy.In the interior beside theazulejospanels representing scenes on the life of the Virgin, there are two gilt carved wood collateral altarpieces devoted to Saint Anne and St. Joachim, designed by José de Santo António de Vilaça, who is also the author of the main gilt carved wood altarpiece in the octagonal cupola-covered chancel. from Museum with no Frontiers
