At first I thought it was not a church as the facade is simply white with some volcanic rocks. The church is not big but it has a big golden main altar and pulpit. The walls also got azulejos. The interior design is really amazing. This church is home to a miraculous image of Jesus Christ and is very much venerated in the island. Because of this, many locals visit the place to pray.

The internal decorations are magnificent. Outside it is quite plain whitd walls and the usual big wooden door, it is well used by locals ax an active church. The internal decoration is wonderous to see. Walls in blue tiles depict olden day scenes, ceiling decorated in gold leaf. Just amazing!

This is a beautiful, very old church with a magnificent gold altar. At the back of the church there is a metal gate where the statue of Senh;or Santo Cristo is kept. It is also very beautiful adorned with beautiful flowers.
