Area provides some great vistas

The area in general provides some of the most beautiful Vistas. From the top you'll be able to see the towns below and the church itself is lovely

Nice small church on the top of the hill, interesting stairways. Look over the city is great. Just 15min from city center.

Part of Furnas day trip. Steps featured certain stations of the cross on the way to a cute chapel at the top. Wonderful views of the Franco island and its cliffs were a fitting reward.

The current temple dates from the eighteenth century, and will have been built on a previous one probably dating from the sixteenth century, erected by the population in honor of the Virgin.

Lots of stairs, but view from top is breathtaking. A must if in Vila Franco. Church was not open when we were there.

Although the inside is small, the church is stunning, as are the views from it! Well worth finding this.

Lots of photo opportunities here. The architecture is unique and there is a quaint church at the top of the staircase. In addition, the views from the top are awesome. But, be sure to map the location well because we spent at least 10 minutes driving around until we found the correct road as some of the roads are newer... More

Oddly the (very good) map of the island did not include this wonderful church. I wish I could have been there when the hydrangea were in bloom. It was speculator even in the off season.
