As we approached this impressive looking church only to find it closer on a busy tourist day. Still it was nice to walk around this bit of Tavira.

Just off the main stairs/ street this church is simple but pretty. The doorway is the most interesting feature.

Beautiful small church at the top of the steps from the centre of Monchique. An oasis of calm for a period of quiet reflection. There are 2 altars either side of the main altar. The chancel light was lit beside the tabernacle altar. A sign...More

This small 16thC Church has an unusual "Manuelline" portico which sadly has been festooned with fairy lights. Its interior is has unusual capitals to its pillars in the form of twisted rope, said to be unique and perhaps suggesting some nautical collection
