A photogenic chapel!

The outside of this chapel is a lust for your eyes. It is good for taking pictures. It is close to the city centre of Albufeira. Only open for special events.

Beautiful little church to visit. Very charming. Very easy to find in Old Town, at top of hill, near tunnel to the beach.

Very crowded little church in the middle of old Albufeira. Accoustics wonderful and we enjoyed the choir very much. Perfect way to begin Sunday. Mass at 11.00 am.

Being a church goer, I was incredibly pleased to be able to visit this beautiful church. It is so tranquil, it feels a world away from the hustle and bustle. Just nice to take time out in the hot mid day sun to relax and collect one's thoughts.

Just worth seeing where a small fishing village worshipped before tourism. Still takes over the whole town

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 .
