Situated above the town this church is easy to find. Well looked after and very peaceful inside and out. Worth a look if you in the area especially if you are looking for a little quiet reflection.

The Church of Divino Salvador, is a small whitewashed church in Alvor. The sculptures and carvings on the inside are quite beautiful. A lovely little area is provided to light a candle for those no longer with us. Very nice

Probably the highest point in the village of Alvor, this church is typical of the region ... very well kept, and everything in it's place. The square outside is a suntrap, where you can respectfully watch the world go by in the quiet fishing village.
