Traditional Catholic Church with beautiful tiled walls and highly decorated nave and altar. Don't walk by, walk in and enjoy the peace for 5-10 minutes.

It's a small church with awe-inspiring interior at the same time make you feel peaceful and calm. It closes at 12 pm for lunch and re-opens at 3pm.

A very plain building outside. Every time I have passed by this church the door has been closed, but on this visit my timing was better. The inside is stunning. Worth visiting if you are passing at the right time.

One of the old churches of Funchal. Situated very near the old part of town it is beautiful and very interesting to find out its history.

Like many Madeiran churches, this building lacks architectural excitement from the outside but is lavishly decorated on the inside. Worth popping in if you are going past.
