    Small religious Chapel with a wonderful view of Vila Franca is the islet. It is worth visiting. Access must be done by car.

    We had to walk as our dive was cancelled because of rough seas: nice panorama and photos if skies but closed Church: we have 5 minutes...

  • Gorgeous, tiny church with panoramic views of the village, Atlantic, and countryside. To paraphrase the local captain who recommended the visit, 'there's a reason it's called Our Lady of Peace, with the birds, flowers, cows, sunshine, and vistas, this is perhaps one of the most tranquil places on the island.' Well worth a visit, even if a bit hard to find. Google maps hasn't placed the directions well yet, but they'll get you close and then you can ask in town.
  • A beautiful and unusual church with great views of the surrounding countryside. Certainly worth a visit if only to see the tiles displayed on the stairs leading up to the church. If you are driving to the church, try to avoid central Vila Franca Do Campo as the busy narrow roads are a driving nightmare.
  • Beautiful place. How to get there: DO NOT USE GOOGLE MAPS NAVIGATION. It wants you to make impossible turns, to go in one-way streets in the wrong direction and the street that leads to the chapel stops existing at a certain point. Just follow the steep M528 street to the end and keep going for like 2 minutes.
  • Mustsee including beautiful views over Vila Franca do C. , the Ilheta and ocean. Steep road, be aware.
  • Beautiful view from the south coast of the Island!
