Definitely a mark stone in Angra!! Outside the statue of John Paul II. Indoors can be found information of historical facts. Should also be provided at least in English due to the tourist affluence!

You can't help but visit this Cathedral because it's on the main road. An important church but nothing that makes it really stand out.

This was lovely. There was a man doing restoration work inside. We could see how beautiful it was and also was going to be. Wow! Go here.

fully reconstructed after the terrible quake of Jan1, 1980 still keeps its grandeur, a wonderful pipe organ and many items of interest

We enjoyed the visit. My husband, who has never been in European cathedrals, strongly enjoyed the experience. For myself, having been through more than a few, I still enjoyed, but caution against thinking it will take your breath away. There's a quiet and understated strength...More

I love touring old churches. It was beautiful and peaceful. It's right in the middle of everything, so definitely take a look. (It was even open during their customary siesta time (12-2).)

Beautiful site to see. Many steps to walk too but it’s immense and magnificent. Structurally so pretty. Matches of the colors of Se Street.

unfortunately, as an attraction, the Cathedral suffered a lot of damage in the 1980 earthquake. It appears that many of the frescoes above the altar had been damaged and the interior is rather plain. For the local people, it remains religiously, historically and architecturally significant....More

From the guide I expected a rich church with many decorations but the interior is not very exciting. The tower and the treasury were both closed and the girl at the entrance could not speak a word of english so we had no idea why
