  • Sé Catedral de Angra do Heroísmo is the biggest temple and one of the major monuments of the island of Terceira. "The current Temple was built on the former Church of San Salvatore, dating probably from 1496. The primitive Church remains the altar major, situated under the Chapel. Proceeded, in 1570, the construction of the Cathedral, stately style, and later in the twentieth century the work of restoration, since many natural disasters, including the earthquake of 1980 and a great fire in 1984, caused serious destruction. Sé Catedral de Angra do Heroísmo is characterized by your sober facade of two bell towers, and features a beautiful interior with carved Cedar ceiling tiles from the 17th century, a gallery of paintings depicting the Bishops of Angra, 7th-century sculptures, rosewood furniture and the famous organ.
