  • Beautiful baroque-style Church (renovated in the s. XVIII on a temple erected in 1420 by order of D. Henry the Navigator). Well worth the high altar, the Gothic carving of our Lady of Africa (s. XIII-XIV) and the Cristo de la Vera Cruz (a carving of the 12th century, which is the oldest of the procession in the Holy week of Ceuta).

  • It is the most remarkable Church of Ceuta. Our Lady of Africa that tends to occasionally carry a Francoist shawl is located inside.

  • . Fairly uninteresting outside, just a rather ordinary church painted pink and white. Although I suppose that for a Brit, a pink-painted church is slightly of interest! However inside it is overwhelming with the gold-leaf decorations pulling your eyes into the altar and the statue of Our Lady of Africa, the patron saint of the town of Ceuta, and the origin of the girl's name "Africa" which you hear here as mothers call their toddlers to them in the park. .
