    The three-nave church built in the 18th century, impressed with their ornate altars, carried by bent angels as well as the Azulejos (blue way tiles) on the side walls of the magnificent golden chorus.

    The architecture of the beautiful façade is in keeping with the buildings of all the large Wide full of history. Brave pride the gilded main altar to rival with the Church of the Holy Christ.

    One of the largest and most beautiful churches of the Azores. In my opinion your visit is indespensavel for those who visit the city of Ponta Delgada.

Where to stay in Ponta Delgada

As the island of Sao Miguel's primary tourist hotspot and center of activity, Ponta Delgada boasts perhaps the widest array of the lodging options in the Azores. Check into one of the luxury hotels in the core, closer to the ocean, to treat yourself to swimming pools, spa facilities, and a host of other amenities. Alternatively, try a smaller guesthouse or private villa slighty farther from the sea to save a bit on costs while still keeping yourself within reach of the area's churches, museums, and coastal fortress. The city itself is relatively compact, so most of the hotels in and around the city center provide easy access to its historical sites and tourist attractions by foot.
