This church high up on the hill overlooking the village was simply amazing. The view from the church was beautiful. The church itself was worth the stop. The tile work on each level going up was incredible.

Worth the visit, but need a car or taxi to drive up to the church, the walk down wasn't to bad. The views are spectacular of Vila Franca. The photo opt of the church and steps are also unusual.

On a clear day you may be able to see Santa Maria. Worth taking the stairs to the top. Bring your camera for the stunning views.

We visited on an afternoon when it was closed. Nonetheless The view from the hill top was gorgeous. The town of Vila Franca do Campo below and the ocean beyond was just beautiful!
