Certainly didn’t compare to many Cathedrals I have seen in many other European cities. That being said it is still amazing to look at the architecture and wonder how this was built in its time period. Because of its very reasonable admission it is worth a visit.

This church left us feeling underwhelmed and a bit sad. It has a neglected or unloved feeling despite the Gothic proportions and decorated niches and side chapels.
A neatly dressed couple ahead of us were refused permission to enter with their shorts judged to be too short. This arbitrary judgement was not encountered in any of the other churches we've visited, and given the tourists (including us) wandering around taking photos, it seems petty.

Worth going into if you are up by the castle, but I would not go out of your way to way to see it. It costs €2 per person to enter, via a side door that is not clearly signposted. The interior of the cathedral is not overly ornate, but still beautiful and serene.

A delightful quaint cathedral in the lovely setting of Silves very quintessential of Portuguese towns.

Not like any cathedral I have seen before. Very plain and truthfully not very interesting. Looks like some maintenance work still needs to be done.

I got there right on time for Sunday Service, there was no fee (or I missed it). The cathedral is nice, The major downside was a Bar next to the Cathedral which was extremely loud and played music while service was going. To me it was very disturbing and I left in the middle cause I couldn't keep hearing all that noise clashing with the service. If you go to the Castle stop by the Cathedral but I wouldn't make a special trip.

To say that this is a cathedral and in the past was a bishopric it is rather underwhelming and barely worth the €1.50 fee - our local parish church in Italy has side chapels of more artistic merit. The Gothic architecture is impressive as is the statue of Jesus falling under the weight of the cross.
Visit and enjoy but manage your expectations

A pretty cathedral and castle but not huge. We enjoyed looking around but didn’t stay long. The castle offered a 360degree view of the surrounding countryside so it’s well worth a look

Cheap to get in and some nice things to see. But as in most of the historical buildings, sadly lacking in information to engage, It is a lovely space though and well worth a visit.

We left Albuferia early on what turned out to be a 12 hour day.
Local buses and several coaches dropped us by the river and we were lead up a steep,hill past the castle ruins to the cathedral.
1 euro entrance inside.
Tall ceilings and several alcoves, lots of tourists, no dress code.
Saw nesting stalks, the local veg market and cheap wine shops on the way back down to the coach.
Would have liked to do a boat trip along the river.
