  • A delightful quaint cathedral in the lovely setting of Silves very quintessential of Portuguese towns.  more »
  • Together with the castle the cathedral forms the focal point of Silves. I would call it more of a church than a cathedral but it was very peaceful and quiet inside.  more »
  • This is a small cathedral situated close to the castle. Like all cathedrals, it has a degree of reverence, particularly as this is set in a small town  more »

  • This church is not worth the trip! If you come to visit the castle of Silves, the 'cathedral' is a small side-tour. Nothing special. The interior is average, at best, but you need to pay a € 1,50 pp entrance fee. Very uncommon for this average church. So my opinion is: Worth a trip: no! Worth a visit: no, not combined with the entrance fee. Worth a virtual visit: just to satisfy your curiosity, browse throuhg the pictures in Google maps and spend the time saved in the castle.
  • Small cathedral currently under renovation, with a little bit of history and some art to look at. There is a small entrance fee of 1.5€ for each person.
  • Beautiful place to walk around
  • Lovely Cathedral, very steep hill.
  • The midnight mass on Christmas Eve was very touching. The visiting priest had a wonderful voice. But sadly this church would disappoint anyone looking for a cathedral.
