A beautiful sacred space, but little information available to help with a tourist visit. It would have been much better if we could have been given more of the buildings history etc. on site, rather than having to go away & research for ourselves.

A Mass was going on when we stopped in for a look. Devout Madeirans kneeling and praying the rosary at the side altars and in front of the statue of Mary. Some of these small old churches are real gems.

A small cathedral in the centre on Funchal. We were advised to visit in the morning as it closes in the afternoon. Not particularly colourful and quite dark inside. There was scaffolding on the outside and in the altar area for our recent visit.

Part of the outside and one end of the inside was shrouded in scaffolding In March 2017. It is not a particularly exciting building. Please note it is closed between 12 and 3

Richly decorated cathedral with unique wooden ceiling, centre of town location worth a visit. Check opening times.

Lovely to see the effort to keep such a historic building in good condition. And a lovely church, it is. The location is excellent & a great landmark to find your way around the streets.

The cathedral is very different inside compared to outside. It is old and interesting but perhaps not the most beautiful church. We did not do an actual tour - we just looked around.

Quite attractive on the inside. Externally bland. Open at odd hours. Worth a look if passing by. Good atmosphere

This does not seems like a Cathedral. Nothing special. But it's on the tourist route and worth a quick visit.
