This church is very popular with Irish and English couples who wish to get married! Very nice priest Fr Max. Beautiful 500 year old church in the centre of Alvor. The church has been recently restored and is absolutely beautiful inside. Well worth a visit. The priest says an English mass on a saturday evening at 6 pm

This church is one if the most beautiful churches I have ever been in. Mass is said in English on Saturday evenings and Portuguese on Sunday mornings. Went only to the masses said in English for the two weeks we were there. A lovely priest I have to say. Because we were there in August I had to bring a fan with me to cool myself down at the evening mass as it was still very hot outside. But I have to say well worth the visit.

On my last visit to Alvor I attended Mass in this beautiful Church . I am a protestant Lay preacher but my belief is that we all need A House of God whatever our denomination to rest and reflect or just meditate . I look forward to my next visit .

It is a lovely church inside, and the outside is very pretty with it's courtyard and large flowering trees and it's painted yellow and white. Cannot wait to get married there next year.

In all the years of coming to Alvor, I have greatly enjoyed an hour or so, without my family and friends. To just come and reflect, appreciate my life and say a few prayers. I am really not that religious in the UK, but somehow get enthralled in this beautiful church. I have previously caught a service, with full choir (this moved me so much I burst into tears, not even understanding the words) Sitting peacefully in the square in front of the church, makes me feel emotional. I look forward greatly to re-visiting Church of Divino Salvador, in July when myself and family are due to return

Not active as a church, it is located by a small square in the village close to the other church. It is open during the day for viewing the altar, etc. though really a good place for a quiet respite from the shops, etc.

This is a beautiful church known as Igreja Matriz da Alvor on google maps. It is not to be confused with the Church of Misericordia which is much smaller and closer to the centre of Alvor. Outside this church there is a peaceful pedestrian area/square which has several benches where one can while away an afternoon. Inside, the knave is exquisite. We sat inside and reflected, taking in the splendour. This is well worth a visit both inside and outside. Enjoy!
