Long Description:
[PT]
"Este conjunto constituído por sete capelas edificadas no século XVIII, é um registo arquitectónico e artístico único no panorama nacional. O percurso simboliza a Paixão de Cristo, que aparece representada em composições retabulares nas várias capelas. Começa na Igreja Matriz, dissemina-se por outros cinco nichos na zona histórica da cidade, terminando na capela do Calvário, de maiores dimensões e precedida por uma ampla escadaria. As capelas, de programa construtivo e decorativo rococó, apresentam uma grande depuração e unidade estilística."

"Os Passos de Ovar não têm paralelo, sob o ponto de vista qualitativo, no panorama nacional, tratando-se de um conjunto de de sete capelas do séc. 18, que constituem o percurso das Passos da Paixão."

"This set comprising seven chapels built in the 18th century is a quite remarkable architectural and artistic example, unique in the country. The path symbolises the Passion of Christ, represented in altarpiece compositions depicted in several chapels. It begins in the Main Church, spreading through the other five niches located in the historical centre of the city, and it ends in Calvary Chapel, which is the biggest one, offering a vast stairway. These chapels follow a constructive Rococo style orientation and stand out for its great simplicity and artistic unity."
From: (visit link)
