I passed by this church very often.The outside of this chapel is a lust for your eyes. This time the door was open. A great opportunity to have a look at the interior. The inside is also beautiful and peaceful. Nobody in, so a great chance to take some pictures. It is close to the city centre of Albufeira. Only... More

It's a steep climb up the hill to this church, but worth it in the end, not very large but just as charming , used a lot by locals so always someone in there, and a bit of respect required at all times. I was taken back by the alter in such a small church.

Spend 10 minutes looking at the history of the town, will give you a real feel for the place. Not a church in the traditional sense. This is really a museum. Some nice little bars and restaurants near here also. Safe area to wander around at night.

We were heading to Merlins Pub when we came across this beautiful Old Town church. The church looks amazing with its white washed walls and we had a little look around the church but we couldn't go inside as it was closed but I must say the exterior is superb and the views from the entrance looking out onto the...

We went on Saturday evening, a mass on going and joined with many people. Blessed experience with my family. Very lovely and top hill place. The only difficult is holders can't walk instead use taxi service

we visited the church yard and surprisingly had an interesting hour, the walk was pleasant through the town, it was fascinating to see all the caskets and a bit of history of the families graves, my mate said it reminded her of the vampire diaries.

This Church is beautiful, incredibly tranquil and a wonderful place to visit on one's holiday. I would recommend visiting, even if it is just to take a few minutes out of the hot sun, to find oneself again and connect with your inner self. I really love this beautiful Church.

We attended this family Mass and luckily we got there 15 minutes early. The only seats available were in the front row....other late comers sat on the sanctuary. We were disappointed that not a word of English was uttered. The Mass ended after an hour with a very special blessing given by the young priest to the couple celebrating their... More
