It is a very beautiful church inside out with typical look of an Azorian church but larger than most here. Nicely decorated and peaceful.

Stopped by here while on shore from our cruise. It's pretty enough but not a major attraction. Worth a quick peek.

Attended Sunday evening mass for like 30 minutes. I'm not religious and I hardly understand the lingo, but the service was full of peace and tranquillity. Great feeling of community too among the worshippers. Like finding back what we have lost several decades ago.

A very interesting black and white building on the outside with Igreja San Cristo on the same square. The church is not as ornate as Sao Sebastian but still worth a quick stop.

This is a wonderful, beautiful old historical church from the 1500's. Located off to the side of the main streets, it is a great example of Portuguese architecture. This is a must see when you visit this charming city.

This is a beautiful church inside. My grandparents were married here, so I have a personal history here. I visited with my family and my children were so happy to see a place where their ancestors worshipped. A truly wonderful experience!
