I am not religious in the slightest but this church is well worth a short amoint of your time. It's very impressive and very beautiful.

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.

Simple exterior, but wow inside. It is a very deceiving little church, but I was happy I stumbled upon it,

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.

A beautiful little church and a Funchal must do...close to the centre. Go after 3pm to be on the safe side. We recently had the pleasure of listening to the young choir practising...wow! If you would like a little quiet time do go and enjoy the calm, paintings and carvings
