  • From the main square you have to climb to the top of the hill on your west. The church is often closed. I wouldn’t go out of my way to see it.  more »
  • We visited the Church, through the municipal trips. The atmosphere and the history of this church we struck. Here chustvuetsja the presence of God. And when even the Church acolyte has played on the organ, were simply spectacular delights.

  • For better un.peu the life of the Portuguese, nothing like that to participate in the Sunday mass. All the seats are taken, there are even people standing at the back. Everyone sings. The young priest's sermon is long and lively. A feast of Christianity.

  • Wonderful Holy Week and Easter ceremonies....Holy Thursday washing of in costume parishioners was awesome....Good Friday Service, kissing of Cross and subsequent 40 personband led procession around Old Town was so meaningful....Jesus in a coffin!!!....the two priests and their young assitantants were extraordinarily well prepared for the sacred liturgy.....singing by choir was heavenly.
  • Most beautiful place in Albufeira. You can find restaurant and bar here and sea beach is just 3-5 minutes away.
  • For those who love history is a place that must be visited.
