“Christmas Eve Mass - brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

It was nearly packed by 2315hrs, and more people just kept on coming in. People were stood or sat in the isle and stood at the back for the service. They had the most amazing choir, it was worth every minute.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

We went to midnight mass at the Catherdral and it was a very moving experienc.
Madeira is a very family place and celebrate Xmas the way it should be celebrated ie what the true meaning of Xmas is.

“Not interesting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

... But maybe if you know more about the history of the Island and the cathedral, it will be somewhat interesting to you.

“Lovely Cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

This was a lovely Cathedral in the heart of Funchal Old Town. It was easy to walk to and was interesting to visit.

“Tiny cathedral”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

This is the smallest cathedral I have ever visited. Nothing like the ornate cathedrals, even churches of Italy, for example. The ceiling is interesting but very hard to see in the weak lighting. I realise they are probably trying to protect it but other places manage to illuminate at least part of an area. Don't go out of your way to visit but worth going in if you're passing.
