This is the Misericordia Church in Angra and we loved it. The visit is paid (small fee) but it's well worth the price as the guide was very helpful and explained everything with much detail.

This church, down by the marina, is magnificently decorated and well worth a visit, although one is "invited" to pay a small donation/ entrance fee. A charming lady offered us a lot of interesting information plus a small explanatory leaflet.
