  • Very fun. Walk around the gardens, look at the medieval architecture, and DEFINATELY go up the bell tower. The views are EXCEPTIONAL! It is a tight squeeze to walk up the steps, so you have to be pati...  more »
  • The Church itself is nothing special but the views from the tower are fabulous! It is worth climbing the staircase and are not very tight steps:)

  • Small Cathedral, very well kept, opulent, tiles on wall, a beautiful organ, very beautiful religious objects highlighted in the Museum. Views of the Ria Farmosa, visit without hesitation No.

  • Well worth the 3.50 admittance fee. Great views from the top of the cathedral and the interior is fantastic extremely ornate and decorative. Consist of a small museum and holds plenty of art work. Really worth visiting while in faro.
  • Very old church, well preserved, connected with cathedral museum and access to a bell tower, offering great view over thr town and Ria Formosa. Quaint staff, but helpful. Lot of catholic church exhibits. Reasonable price for ticket. It's 3,50 for full ticket.
  • This was a great experience for 3.5EUR. We walked through the church, the museum, and watched planes come in from the tower. About 1 hour and we were in and out! The church was gorgeous - I couldn’t stop taking photos! Built in the 13th century, but rebuilt mostly in the 17th-18th century, still a timeless piece of history. The entrance does not look that impressive but the church is worth walking through and the lookout is the best part! Photos as of April 2018.
  • It's okay if you like old buildings.
  • Wanted to visit but the square was closed due to a festival that required a 15 euro ticket. Could not visit the museum either. Very disappointed.
