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.

Very interesting how in both Porto Santo and in Gran Canarias, in Islas Canarias, Columbus homes are "kiddy-corner" to a church.
