Very plain looking from the outside as are many churches here, but inside the level of detail and ornate decoration is truly amazing. Only a small church but superbly maintained and free to visit.

Very ornate church but little to differentiate it from the others in Faro. Some good side chapels. Worth a visit after you've been to the Carmo.

Churches are nice places to visit. This is a great example. The architecture and the sculpture is to be admired. When I visit a church, I like to light a candle for those no longer with us.

Worth calling in, it is very near the more famous church with all the skulls, so no time wasted and easy to find.

This church was extremely well attended by mass goers when I arrived. A fully functional church just below the Carmo Church.

Not to much to say about this place. We just kind of stumbled into it on a day of our faro vacation. We went into it and looked at everything. We can recommend, even though we are not to big church-visitors.

Maybe we have visited to many churches but we found this one to be not so special. The alter and the pulpits were interesting though.

Much attention has been (or is being) given to lighting in this spectacular local church, and if you are lucky enough you will see the variations in lighting. The side altars are pretty nice, but the 'throne' for the Blessed Sacrament above the high altar...More

Well worth looking in at this church. Has various alters and chapels all excellent and a wow factor. I took several photos. Mass at 6:00pm daily.

Nothing extraordinary here, but nice enough to view for the architecture, especially the ceilings and in a lovely square
