A small church located at the centre of vila beilara. Close to the house of c. Columbus. Must see if youre in the area. Church is mostly open and actively used by the villagers.

Located in the middle of town just in front of the Columbus House Museum it is easy to find and the interior can be viewed in just a brief visit.
