There are a lot better cathedrals around than this one and it is not really worth the admission fee. Inside it was plain and drab, apart from the usual over-ornate altar and statues, and outside it is also not inspiring. It lacks beauty and majesty, with no atmosphere and very dark and dingy inside. We would not recommend bothering with it, especially having to pay for entry. Generally speaking rather a bore

Visited Silves Cathedral with two friends. Awesome sight from the outside and breathtaking from the inside. We paid €1 each to enter and frankly it was worth more. There was so much to see and I had not expected to be so moved by the sights inside. You can by a brochure at the entrance but beware, it is all in Portuguese with no English translation. Not a lot.to do in Silves but if you go anywhere I recommend this.
