Really interesting architecture, in a very nice spot at the edge of the city with spectacular view. You pay in the entrance for visiting this church and the church of Sint Pedro that is located close to this one

The Basilica was closed when we visited Arcos, but since you probably already walked up the hill, it's worth coming to see it for some nice photos. I can't vouch for the interior since I didn't get to see it, but there are some good...More

It was our second visit to Arcos and again the church was closed. Oh well... we returned mostly for the views and the vistas from the church plaza are hard to beat - simply fantastic! Talking about good photo ops... I loved the bell tower...More

Some of the side chapels contain some beautiful altars and interesting art. Many of the carvings are nice. It is worth the two euro fee.

It is a nice church, but we did not feel either of the Arcos churches were exceptional. Both churches are closed in the afternoon so you will need to plan your visit around that.

There is a very handy mini bus type service that leaves the Arcos bus station on the hour and half hour, and will drop you near your hotel if you are staying anywhere en route to the historic centre, say near the Basilica... More
