Although there is a plaque in the façade of the chapel that states that it was built in 1810, it is known that there are acts of cult in the chapel since 1809, due to an initiative of Francisco José de Faria that lived in Padrão de Campanhã. Therefore the date of 1810 may be a possible reconstruction or modification. The chapel has suffered some works and expansion throughout the nineteenth century and more recently. In the sacristy there is an image of Senhor do Padrão, carved in stone, which was placed under a porch that existed on the north side of rua do Prado, today known as rua do Heroísmo. It was transferred to the chapel in 1869 at the expense of José de S. Couto, from Campanhã (Source: Our Lady of Good Health Chapel).
