Remarkable paintings in obscure location
Sep 2019 • Friends
Probably not worth a special trip all its own, but if you’re taking a tour of the island of Sao Jorge, do schedule time for a peek at this church. The paintings are stunning, very elaborate.

A beautiful ornate interior
Jul 2019 • Solo
The church has a simple facade, but the interior is in a baroque style. All the walls and even the ceiling is covered with gilt work, paintings and statues. Visit is free and a guide can give you a tour if you like. That is also free, but you can leave a donation in a box.
The area around it is lovely, the church is set at a small bay. Worth a visit.

Stunning little church
Jul 2019 • Couples
One of the highlights on the whole island of Sao Jorge. It’s plain and cute from outside, but the inside is a jewel box of decoration. The friendly guide stationed there speaks good English and will show you around.

Beautiful Church with a really nice lady explaining the history of the place.

Closed for restoration
Sep 2016 • Couples
We went to visit the church yesterday but it's still closed for restoration. From the outside you can't see much because the church is in scaffolding. At this moment there is in our opinion no reason to descend to Manadas.

Closed for restoration in July 2016

This church is set in a beautiful location. However, it is currently covered in scaffolding and access was not possible on 2 July 2016. There was no information about when it would reopen.
