I love this church and include a visit whenever I am on my walk. The opportunity to sit and say a quiet prayer is uplifting. Saturday evening Mass in English well provides for some of the many visitors to Alvor.

Lovely church but up quite a steep hill so no good if you are not able to walk far. It was very peaceful. No candles to light in the church.

We got married in this Church and always visit it numerous times during our stay in Alvor. The only downside with it is we like to light a candle in churches and there is no facility here to do this.
