Church of Saint John the Evangelist (College)

The church of Saint John the Evangelist of the College of Funchal, in the parish of São Pedro, is one of the most beautiful Portuguese churches of its time, and one of the richest churches of Madeira island. This 17th century building represents the transition from international Mannerism to Portuguese Baroque.
This beautiful religious building is the work of the Jesuits order and displays remarkable gilded wooden works from the 17th century apart from glazed tiles and other paintings dated from the 17 and 18th centuries.
