Saint Anne Church, Albufeira (must see)
The baroque altarpiece has a statue of Saint Anne in the center. At the right side there are statues of St. Joseph and the child Jesus. On the left side is Anne's husband, St. Joaquin. The piece is painted blue with gilding. This is probably the work of sculptors Francisco Xavier Guedelha and Joao Baptista.
This is a one nave church with three chapels. Other carved statues in the church include one of Christ Crucified. The baroque wooden pulpit is pointed in gold. The church is very close to the Vila Recife Hotel and the Parish Church. Each year on the 14th of August Images of Mary and Child Jesus from the church are paraded in a boat.
