It is very pleasant to look at this beautiful, characteristic building. With the predominant colours of the Island - black and white - it takes us to ancient times.

Nearby the hotels, some good restaurants as S. Pedro, and the port, this is another example of the churches that the Portuguese built during the Discoveries. Worth a visit.

This was a beautiful church that we were able to visit prior to boarding our whale watching tour. We were asked to pay €1 per person to enter, but then we had a guided tour and the guide helped to capture some fantastic photos.

This was another church that I visited while exploring Ponta Delgada! The magnificent ceiling made me stay there for a good while, with my head looking up with total awe! A place not to miss, thats for sure!
