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!!

A lovely experience, there are so many beautiful churches in Portugal and all worth a visit. There is so much history and lots of it involving the churches.

we popped into this church and were delighted! so plain on the outside but stunning inside! Well worth a visit! the kids loved the 'electric candles' as we always light a candle in any church but you pop your money in and the lights flash before staying on so you can see which is your candle! The alter is one... More

A lovely beautiful small church and with great views from the front door. We loved it when we visited, if I remember right it was only open in a morning. Do go and have a look.
