“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Attended a full mass at the church - holy day of obligation - and found it very beautiful and decorative. Church is on the top of a hill so the views of the harbour are worth it. Homily went on a bit which didn't help as the church was very crowded and over-warm. Well worth a visit to the church if you like that sort of thing!!

“peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

I love to visit this church whenever I am in Lagos. It has a simple yet beautiful interior and offers a welcome respite from both the heat of the Algarve and the buzz of family!
