Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Rosário

Church

in Ibo Island

Ibo might be 99% Muslim, but its most striking religious building is this whitewashed, weather-worn Catholic church that anchors the main square, a legacy of the Portuguese. The date of its foundation is one of many Ibo mysteries. There has likely been a church on the site since the late 1500s, although the present building probably dates from around 1800.
