One of the most romantic settings in the Algarve to hold a wedding ceremony, Praia de Nossa Senhora da Rocha (which translates as The Beach of Our Lady of the Rock) is a small fishing community on the coast near Porches.
Perched on a clifftop, and offering spectacular views out over the Atlantic, is the shrine of Nossa Senhora da Rocha, where fishermen’s wives used to light candles to safeguard their husbands whilst at sea: a tiny, picture-perfect traditional Portuguese chapel, complete with a red-tiled roof and white walls, it provides the ultimate photo (and drone!) opportunity.
Luxury Algarve Weddings can arrange exclusive use of the area in front of the chapel (which is not consecrated for a full religious service) for ceremonies and blessings, with seating for up to 100 guests. Options include canapés and champagne pre- and post-ceremony, whilst for smaller numbers, we can organise a post-ceremony dinner or BBQ with an incredible view guaranteed.
We can also organise your wedding reception (for larger numbers) at a nearby villa or other luxury venue.
