The Santuario do Senhor Jesus da Pedra sanctuary is located outside the city walls of Óbidos. This sanctuary, by architect Capitán Rodrigo Franco, was built of stone around 1747 in memoriam of D. João V, becoming one of the most interesting baroque buildings of Portugal due to its hexagonal floor.

Over the main altar, a true paleochristian cross can be seen, which used to be in an annex chapel. This was an important pilgrimage destination, and even to this day, there is a yearly celebration on May 3rd.

Inside there are three chapels: the presbytery, devoted to the Calvary, with an oil painting by André Gonçalves; the lateral chapels devoted to Nossa Senhora de la Concepción; and the death of Saint John, with paintings by José da Costa Negreiros.
Noteworthy is the stone image of Christ on the cross that can be seen in the Presbytery. Whilst kept at the shrine, it received great devotion (especially by King Juan V) until the inauguration of the sanctuary.
