Beautiful Church well worth the climb to the top of the hill as it provides wonderful views of town and sea. We had our picnic sitting on the wall whilst admiring the views. Only notice outside was in Portugese and mass times were not obvious. However I followed the sound of the bells on Sunday morning which believe it or... More

We found this tranquil haven after a short climb up the hill in the old town. It is well worth the walk up. The church interior is beautiful it is historic and a real find. The church has a history which is described at the entrance and is truly beautiful inside. It isn't open all the time, but if you... More

A beautiful Church at the top of Albufeira. A bit of a climb if you struggle with mobility. It sits overlooking the cobbled streets of the bustling Old Town, you can always walk in and enjoy the architecture, or just sit and enjoy the quite. 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
