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????
