    A very nice Church experienced still and peaceful. We were here for a short while and had small children with us that we had to hyscha quite often because we thought we were bothering. If you appreciate fine churches, it is worth a visit.

    Very beautiful church, with various architectural styles where the Manueline door fantastic. The Bell Tower on Bank and black (like most of the architecture on this island) dominates the square of the matrix with a towering height which can be seen from far away (well visible from the plane). And a mandatory site visit.

    The Church was built in the 16th century in the so-called Emanuel style especially impressed by their photogenic facade with 2 beautifully decorated portals. Inside is the statue of the hl. Sebastian (patron) worshiped, who was killed during the persecution of Christians by the Romans. To highlight you're typical blue-and white Azulejos (tiles) in the stucco sacristy (Rococo style). Also the arches are decorated with stucco.

  • Looks like the main point of interest in PD. Definitely must-see
  • Great space
  • Beauty full! :D
  • It's a typical church, in the same style as most Azorean ones
  • I am not religious but I really admire this church. Have a fabulous architecture. Without a doubt is a monument that is worth to be visited.

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.
