Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It's a beautiful church but we couldn't find any information on when the church is open and the time of Mass.

and lovely bell tower with the usual stork’s nest! Inside was a simple baroque Church with five altars. Not too opulent.

Portuguese churches are always so beautiful and this one doesn’t disappoint. I always drop by to light a candle and pass 5 mins in prayer. It’s a famous church for the fishermen of Olhao. The decor is beautiful as well as the intricate ceiling, it’s painted in gold with statues at the alter and sides.
It’s a 10 minute walk from the front. Outside there’s some cafes and a few shops across the road. Definitely worth a 10 minute visit.

Whether you are religious or not, this church is a magnificent piece of architecture in this beautiful town which deserves a visit. See if you can spot the stork’s nest and if you’re lucky the pair of storks who guard the church.

Very peaceful and tranquil place to take a moment and reflect on what has happened and what is happening in the world at the present time. I think that more photographs are taken of the outside of this church because of the nesting storks that are always here.

Always worth a visit when in Olhao. Gets busy on mass days. Still a well maintained whitewashed building with character. Although the big nests were visible I didn’t actually see any storks this time - a pity as this is their spiritual home.

Enjoying history and all the landmarks in Faro, this is definitely one not to be missed, very beautiful in the Old Town near the marina with a nice square surrounding it.

Like with every town and city of Portugal, this is the local church at the end of a broad avenue. Beautiful to look at from outside and minimal on inside but still amazing in the intricacies of the altar.

If you are in Olhão and on the way to the bustling marina, this church is a good stopover on the way.
