Church of São João Evangelista of the College of Funchal

9000-080 Funchal - Funchal

Information

The lovely São João Evangelista Church of the Funchal College is situated in the historical centre of the charming Funchal town, and is one of the most beautiful temples of its epoch.

Built in the 17th century, this church marks the transition of an European Mannerist architectonic style to a Portuguese Baroque style, with the great religious ostentation.
This stylistic combination marked since this period of Jesuit expansion, that spread out the Christ word all over the “new worlds”, colonizing and Christianizing many new territories.

The Church presents a latin cross plant, with one only nave, the main chapel quite evidenced from the rest of the architectonic set, profusely decorated with golden carved wood and rich paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as rich blue and white glazed tiles panels of the 17th century.
