This church is located next to the tourist office and a delicious lunch spot that is right next to the tourist office. The church has a very pretty tile mosaic that goes through the history of the church that we really enjoyed.

There are two churches in Furnas, this larger of the two is situated near to the tourist information office (the other - Igreja de Santana - is near to the entrance to the Terra Nostra Gardens). Like most of the churches that we've visited in...More

I found the churches in São Miguel pretty, but more or less all looking the same. This one is a bit different because it is surrounded by a pretty garden. And inside the corner with the christening font has walls decorated with beautiful azulejos. So...More
