Nossa Senhora do Amparo Church, Valenca

(4.4/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
Completed in 1780, on the site of an older and more modest chapel, Nossa Senhora do Amparo Church features two iconic domes, covered with blue and white tiles. Dedicated to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, the well-preserved rectangular church consists of nave, chancel, and sacristy, and includes a clock tower that was added in 1822. Inside you can see five white Neoclassical altars, gilded woodwork, and several sacred images of saints, painted in oil by unknown artists. The church is situated on a hill that offers panoramic views of the entire city, so be sure to bring your camera when visiting this historic city landmark.

  • The view of this church, located at the very top of the mountain, from the city centre, is stunning.

  • The ride is a must: you can see the city of Valencia from the top, get on the bandstand and in the Church. I went as a child and came back a grown-up! Exciting!
