Visited with teenage children who were even impressed by the chapel of bones. Two Euro entry charge for adults free for children. Church itself was spectacular, well worth a visit. Easy to walk to from harbour and is closed between 13-15hrs

A beautiful baroque church a little outside of Faro city centre. In the back you can find what, in my opinion, is the most beautiful of the several bone chapels in Portugal.

This little church was amazing. I have been to many amazing churches in my life time but this felt so peaceful and calming. The carvings and alters were mesmerising. Out the back was a small chapel made of human bones and sculls. Incredible. Also some...More

There is a 2€ entrance fee to this church which has a very nice interior but the real attraction here is the small chapel behind the church. The walls and ceiling of the chapel are lined with human bones and skulls. Something you do not...More
