beautiful ornate interior. The craftmanship is stunning and well worth the 2 euro entrance fee as you can go on to see the chapel of bones.

So beautiful! It had a very peaceful feel to it and was just gorgeous! Definitely worth stopping to look inside. The bone chapel was really unique and interesting as well.

Like most churches in Portugal ans Spain this church is a bit ostentatious for my taste but I suppose it was built to impress the masses.The bone chapel is worth a look but would you like to think of your relatives dug up and buint...More

This is a small chapel but very decorative inside outside the back is a small courtyard where you will find the bone chapel which is really airy. The beggars at the door where disappointing but still a must visit if in Faro

Beautiful church with wooden carvings, but such a unique and thought provoking Capela dos Ossos. Take your time to appreciate every sight and sound.

On Largo do Carmo you can visit the charmant little church with a wonderful barock interior, nice decorations; and if you want you can see an ossuary behind the yard.

An important - yet creepy - church in Faro's history. Worth seeing if you have a book on Faro, to understand this building., Go see the Capelo dos Ossos, but set your expectations low as there is no tour or people to answer questions.

It was a couple of euros per adult. You will have completed your visit within half an hour. It is worth going to see and the views from the top are great.
