"Church of Our Lady of the Light" Lagoa Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Lagoa Things to Do: 7 reviews and 11 photos


This is the town’s main church that mostly dates from the 17th century although it was damaged in the 1755 earthquake. The main door and the three windows of the principle facade were only rebuilt in 1809 by the Faro stone-mason, António Xavier de Mendonça. Inside, which was closed when I visited, are some elements of simple Manueline architecture including the main altarpiece where pictures of Our Lady of the Light and Saint Sebastian are featured.
