The outside of the cathedral is beautiful but the inside is not worth the money to be visited. Much better to go to the church that is integrated in the city museum (MAH).

It was awesome feeling being there. We saw wonderful churches, chapels .. gardens, museums all within walking distance, also coffee shops, shopping for local products, also for great local pastries and coffees.

Portugalia (both the Azores and the mainland) are full of beautiful churches, lots of them covered by Azulejos. In comparison this church seems to be rather plain both on the outside and inside. Don't bother.

The cathedral is several centuries old but has been devastated by earthquakes and fire, only to rise phoenix-like. Of particular interest (to us, anyway) was the center altar design and the modern renderings of the stations of the cross.

This is the main Church in Angra, but to be honest it is not that special. Unfortunately an earthquake destroyed a great part of it and now it's not so beautiful.

Very dark and gloomy from the inside. Nothing could inspire me. Actually, the building looks a lot better from the outside.

This is not even the best looking church in Angra. It's very dark and there is not much decoration. I would not even bother. Go to the church at the Museum of Angra, or the main church in Praia de Victoria instead.

Everyone should stop by and see the architecture and statues in the cathedral. Much of it was damaged in the earthquake but it is till worth a visit.

Not sure, we didn't get up in time when we were there. I believe it was at 800am though.
