Situated next to the municipal museum and santa Clara convent this is an other example of a Madeira religious monument. Simple exterior, but this place was so wonderful inside - the pictures don't do it any justice. It is very peaceful to make a stop and contemplate. The climb to the roof is well worth it for the wonderful views... More

Don't be misled by the fairly plain exterior of this church. The interior is exquisite with azulejos and rich gilding ornamentation. Light and bright. A must place to visit. Access by steps

A fairly plain unassuming building on the outside, but venture in and the interior is breathtaking. Amazing chandeliers, statues, carvings. Definitely worth a visit on your tour of Funchal.

Don't be fooled by any of the exterior - this place was so wonderful inside - the pictures don't do it any justice - every church we past that was open to the public (Monday), so we went in a few. worth checkin out before you go for a walk.

Found this lovely church while wandering around Funchal. It is beautiful and very peaceful to sit and contemplate. Surprised it is not in more guide books.

This was another surprise find on a wander about. It's a small but very ornate church, the chandeliers and paintings are great. There's always an air of calm in a church and it's good to stop and be peaceful every now and then. The view of the houses and rooftops is great from the top. Cool and grounding.

We found this church by accident and were so pleased we did! Very pretty interia and peaceful. The climb to the roof is well worth it for the wonderful views over the roof tops.
