A beautiful Church at the top of Albufeira. A bit of a climb if you struggle with mobility.

For a couple of Euros you can light an electric candle to remember someone. An... More

Sadly we couldn't visit inside this lovely old building but enjoyed walking round it during our visit to the Old Town . All the nearby Churches & Clock Towers were unfortunately closed but it's still worth the effort to visit in order to get the feel of ancient Albufeira .

Went to Mass here a few years back and we tried to go back twice this month and it was all closed up. Very disappointed as we wanted to light some candles for my recently deceased Mother In Law :-(

Intrigued by the ambiance of the building. Liked how they have retained the original feel of the place.

Not much to see in Albufeira from a historical point of view and it would have been nice to be able to see inside the church but like many others could not get inside as it was shut!!

Each time I am in Albufeira I try to get to Mass in this chapel. I find it to be a very peaceful place. Although I do not speak Portuguese I enjoy attending the Mass here which is always very packed at 6pm and less packed at 10pm. This was the first time I attended the later Mass and it... More

Read about the history of Albufeira and explore these old buildings, it's amazing. Exploring the buildings and streets, finding out what were in the original walled town was amazing.

Picture of Sant' Ana is correct. The review by 'Evert F' relates to a much older and smaller church a short distance further down the hill towards the centre of the 'old town', which houses artefacts relating to the history of Albufeira, and for which there is a small admission charge. TonyH

Meander to the high end of the old town of Albufeira (just follow the Bell), and you will find an exquisite small church, which has been converted into a small museum of Albufeira. It is a little gem, which you should not miss!!
