Praying to the Good Lord Jesus of Ponta Delgada when surrounded by this magnificent building makes it of a much profounder meaning. Even though having only one century, this church remains as a remembrance of the almost six centuries of history that, with no doubt,...More

A very beautiful church. The ceiling is particularly interesting. It was spotlessly clean, and we were told the cleaning lady sings as she works and has a wonderful voice. Unfortunately we didn’t time our visit to coincide with her working day.

A most beautiful church kept immaculately by the local cleaner who sings like an Angel. The Church is adjacent to the Quay and is a must to see.

This church is beautifully located right at the seafront of Ponta Delgada. I particularly appreciated the paintings on the ceiling, very colourful visuals from the Gospels and creation account, including some local themes such as dolphins and whales.

This was a surprise...I went in to see if there was any good stained glass and found the most amazing painted ceiling!

A lovely church. If you walk on through to the back, you will find a staircase that will bring you upstairs behind the wall where you can see statues up close. From there you also have a view in the church.
