Holy Trinity Church, Funchal

Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web
The spiritual heart of Funchal's British community since offering its first Anglican service in 1822, Holy Trinity Church resides in a tranquil location near the city's central area. The church provides a peaceful place to rest and worship, and also gives visitors the chance to meet local residents and take part in various social clubs and special events. The cream-colored building, designed by the British consul Henry Veitch, features an easily recognizable dome. Step inside the baptistery to see a statue of Philippa of Lancaster, whose 10 children included Henry the Navigator, Portugal's famed patron of explorers.

Around Church green lawns and lovely garden with fruit and decorative trees, on the other hand to the temple adjoins a cemetery. It is interesting to visit!
