We arrived early to ensure we have seats learning from reviews that it really gets full. The reviews were true. It's a really nice church but we were not impressed with the service. I've never attended a mass during Christmas Day with a christening at the same time. It was like we were all there as guests of the family... More

This Church is so interesting for history lovers. It has a history section that includes the old voyages of the early Portuguese Sailors around the world. Part of their work was preaching the word of God. Japan, South Africa and China are included

Superb 18 century church that looks absolutely fantastic. It has a wonderful position in the Old Town and is easily identified by its stunning bell tower and superb white washed exterior. The church is a local parish church so entry is free but it's nice to make a donation as the interior is quite beautiful. If your walking around the... More

I recently visited this beautiful church for my nephews wedding. It was a glorious day and there was a large group of us from Ireland. The church was beautiful inside. It was nicely decorated for the wedding. The architecture is amazing and the altar is lovely. It was a lovely setting for a wedding.

Been here several times. Love to go there for Easter. The church got a makeover a few years back and looks very well. I go to mass there but as it is in Portuguese , well, it's different! It's one of those places that's interesting to visit , so make the time!

Thank John464
