The Portuguese church

In the medina near the south entrance of the Scala Kasbah, in a small dead end street, Rue Ibn Zohr, there is an old church just door to door with the old Portuguese consulat.

Now the old wooden doors are padlocked but from a terrace on a nearby hotel we can see the ruins of the church tower. Unfortunately abandoned and neglected as many other historical monuments in this town.
