The Church of Divino Salvador, is a small whitewashed church in Alvor. The sculptures and carvings on the inside are quite beautiful. A lovely little area is provided to light a candle for those no longer with us. Very nice

Probably the highest point in the village of Alvor, this church is typical of the region ... very well kept, and everything in it's place. The square outside is a suntrap, where you can respectfully watch the world go by in the quiet fishing village.

Lovely church off the main town. Was able to go inside and look around leaving a donation. Very peaceful.

It is a lovely church inside, and the outside is very pretty with it's courtyard and large flowering trees and it's painted yellow and white. Cannot wait to get married there next year.

A tiny beautiful church is now used mainly for funerals or laying out of the remains. But it is a real consecrated church. Set almost in the middle of the bustling town of Alvor it is a haven of peace and tranquility. Do step in...More

We stumbled upon this church near the harbour. It is beautifully maintained, it was so striking painted in the traditional Portuguese yellow and white against the azur blue skies. Inside is really peaceful and surprisingly ornate.
