Santo Antão

The image of St. Antão is located in the Cova Vermelha on the west of the island. Every 18th January, Corvinos make a pilgrimage to this place, for the Feast of St. Anthony, in which the image is decorated with flowers and ferns. Close to the image exists a nest made every year by a pair of grey wagtails (Motacilla cinerea patriciae).
