Dating from the 18th century, this is worth a look when you’re having a wander around Santa Maria. Lovely vaulted ceiling, cool & simple interior. Adjoining junior school was full of friendly locals. Open during the day for some peaceful solace, pop in and be...More

Mass is at 11:30 am on Sunday. Lovely, friendly church - the music was a joy to listen to. The Priests made a point of trying to talk to as many of their Parishioners as possible.

Place where the locals meet, the children play in the grounds around the church, and it is a pleasant place in the centre of Santa Maria. Nothing special in terms of beauty though, and would not go out of my way to visit.

A pleasant simple traditional church. Whilst we did not attend a service when we visited there was a group of women singing beautifully. I understand that the Sunday services are very good

Small, simple but nice looking church with a touch of ocean feel with blue colours. It is worth to come during Sunday service or even better, during religion festivals....

We visited this small church in Santa Maria beforehand, then came by for the service on Sunday. Extra seats were laid out in the yard under shade for the extra visitors to the church.

Sorry but I don't know. I suggest you ask at your hotel reception or visit the church, the soonest you can, to get such information. Have a pleasant stay at Sal!
