Despite a warm day the church was cold and musty. The altars are richly decorated but the whole place felt unwelcoming.

Lovely church with some very unusual statues. I liked the group one of Jesus washing the disciples ‘ feet. Quiet, cool and tranquil.

This is a beautiful, contemplative church that is just perfect for a few minutes' meditation or silence on a busy holiday.

A lovely church at any time of year but to get best suggest visit during the end of Christmas celebrations for Santo Amaro. The efforts made to decorate the church and the adjacent squares are impressive.

We visited on 16 January. The huge Nativity model was still in place in the area of the altar and there were many beautiful flower arrangements and decorations everywhere. The side altars are very ornate. It was a lovely peaceful atmosphere.

This is a charming old church in the centre of the lovely small town of Santa Cruz. There is a full set of the last supper in a transept.
