Seen a wedding and a funeral at this church over the years. Well worth a visit. Only small but full of character.

Take a buss or Cable car to Monte and visit this beautiful church. Place has a lot of stairs so be aware of that. We visited during christmas time and there was also many rooms decorated for christmas scene beside the church.

Monte, reached by bus or - more quickly and expensively - by cable car is famous for its Palace Gardens and its church of Our Lady of Monte, both 'musts' if you decide to go up there in the first place.

If you’re in Monte, a short visit to this church is worth it. (Why do al Madeira churches look identical?)
