We have been to Camara do Lobos many times but never entered this most beautiful church. A real treasure.

Worth a look see and we were lucky enough to be here at festival time when we attended a free classical concert one evening, wonderful, packed with local people. An amazing experience.

Lovely church in a village..by the sea...surrounded by bars...tourists...tourist shop...and we went in to stop and reflect for a moment of introspection. Good. Calm environs for a change. Maybe Churchill went there...after his paintings????

The church is very close to the harbour and its rather ornate interior belies its plain exterior.You are welcome to explore inside. You can walk to the village from Funchal along the coast - well worth doing.
