The Chapel of São Sebastião welcomes all the participants in the bodo and in the final conviviality.
The current construction is the result of profound interventions between 1956 and 1992 on a pre-existing temple, probably from the 16th or 17th century, whose origin would be related to the legendary base concerning the Feast of the Bodo.

Its surroundings also underwent an adaptation intervention to receive the final part of the ceremonial related to this feast, welcoming all the participants in the bodo and in the final conviviality.
