  • Something else worth doing a little stop for photo, with a good view ... good to reflect in silence and in peace, at least when we went there there was no practically anyone else.

  • A beautiful setting, giving panoramic views of the coast and Vila Franca do Campo. The road up is very narrow and winding and a little difficult to find, but well worth the effort. The chapel is quite...  read more »
  • The view is breathtaking in the breast, the little church on the Hill and original way of the cross to give complete satisfaction to be here. Well have a pair of binoculars with you because it is a lot of detail of Vila Franco do Campo to see. A place for reflection and relaxation. On the other sides of the field and meadows with cows in no different from Polish views eg. from Galicia.

  • A spectacular view.
  • Looks cool.
  • Amazing view. My favorite place to tale pictures on all of the island.
  • Excellent location with very nice views of the village and the island of Ilheu. The church stands on the highest point and path leads through a long staircase with a plethora of Church images from painted ceramics. Legend has it that the site found the old icon and transferred it to another location, but the next morning it was on the same top, then this happened several times and then decided to build a church in this place and preserve the shrine there. We traveled by car to the Centre of Vila Franca do Campo and set off on foot on verkh, walked through the center of the village. The place is pretty quiet, as in general all the Azores. In the village there is a port from which you can go on the Ilheu, but only in the summer. Those who do not like walking straight to the Church can be reached by car.
