“Lovely cathedral”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

A warm, inviting, tranquil place right in the centre of Funchal. Open to the public from 7.30 to again and again after 4pm. A very easy place to pray.

“disappointing”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We had to visit 3 times before we found the cathedral open. Really disappointing inside, very dark and not welcoming

“Distinctive bells”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The bell peals before mass were really unusual. Well worth hearing even if you don't go in. We attended a tourist mass which had some readings in English and German with a sizeable choir. Cathedral seems to close in the afternoons, so check opening times if you plan to visit.

“wonderful holiday”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

there was nothing to dislike I have already described all this in my review . I went on some very enjoyable walks, the weather was good. I had a problem putting the type of holiday because there is not a class for a mother and daughter. Some folk may find it a bit of a walk from the courtesy bus pick up and drop off point in the town

“Beggars and out of tune singing”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Ok, so it was a service when we went in and because of the ear-bleedingly bad choir we couldn't spend that long in there but from what we did see it seemed pretty average. Lots of gold, which I suppose it great if you like that kind of thing, for us it was a bit over the top. Whatsmore the beggars plague you as soon as you try and enter or leave.
Having said all that in the sunshine the building looks beautiful from the outside and well worth wandering around.
