Geocache Description:

Nossa Senhora, para onde foste?

Igreja da Nª Srª das Neves


Diz a lenda... que o povo da Relva desejava ter a sua igreja e começaram a construção num lugar que decidiram, no meio da freguesia. Juntaram os materiais e fizeram os primeiros lances de parede.
Os mestres trabalharam todo o dia com vontade, mas em vão, porque tudo o que tinham feito naquele dia desapareceu e os materiais, no outro dia,
apareceram num sítio da freguesia a que hoje se chama Canto da Igreja.
No dia seguinte retomaram o serviço. Acarretaram a pedra e os outros materiais para o lugar marcado e recomeçaram a trabalhar na igreja.
 Mas, na manhã seguinte, o mesmo se tinha dado a pedra tinha sido mudada, sem se saber como, para o tal canto. E assim se repetiu.
A terceira vez começaram a ver que Nossa Senhora também ali aparecia em forma de bola de neve e sempre de costas voltadas para a freguesia. O povo estava apoquentado e sem compreender.
Mas a partir de certa altura entendeu que Nossa Senhora queria a sua igreja ali e de costas voltada contra a freguesia, diferente do que era costume com a maioria das igrejas.
Compreenderam também que a Santa desejava que a igreja fosse dedicada a Nossa Senhora das Neves, como fazia crer a forma de bola de neve com que se mostrava ao povo.
Decidiram fazer a vontade a Nossa Senhora. Iniciou-se a igreja no lugar indicado por Ela.
A construção decorreu normalmente e a igreja foi levantada no lugar e posição indicada.
Hoje lá está a igreja, de costas para a freguesia, no canto da Igreja e dedicada a Nossa Senhora das Neves.

Legend has it ... that the people of Relva wished to have his church and began building a place that decided, in the middle of the parish. Gathered materials and made the first bid wall.
Teachers worked all day with ease, but in vain, because all they had done that day disappeared and materials, the other day,
appeared on the website of the parish is now called Corner Church.

The next day resumed service. Caused the stone and other materials to the appointed place and resumed work in the church.
But the next morning, it had given the stone had been changed, without knowing how, for such singing. And so it was repeated.
The third time they began to see that Our Lady also appeared there in the form of snowball and always with his back to the parish. The people were vexed and uncomprehending.
But from one point understood that Our Lady wanted his church there and turned back against the parish, was different than usual with most churches.
Also understood that Santa wanted the church was dedicated to Our Lady of the Snows, as it did believe the form of snowball with the people that showed up.

They decided to do the will of Our Lady. Began the church in the place indicated by her.
The construction took place normally and the church was lifted into place and position indicated.
Today there is the church, back to the parish, at the corner of Church and dedicated to Nossa Senhora das Neves.
