Santo Antonio Church (Island of Mozambique)

From the 16th century, Island of Mozambique was a Portuguese colony in the 16th century and was a trading hub on the Indian route. There are old builings as fortresses and churches.
This Santo Antonio Church (Igreja de Santo António) was founded in the 16th century. The building seems to have been rebuilt in the 18th century, but it seems that there were some periods of abandonment.
The current building was restored in 1969.
