Easy to find near the port. The cobblestone street in front of the church makes outside photos even more beautiful. Lots of details inside the church, you could take many photos. We were there during a meditation time so it was very quiet.

The major church on the big square in the center of town. It's pretty and charming, but not overwhelming.

Great church to visit. Just a pity that the bell tower is not accessible. The views over the city, the port and the ocean should be fantastic...

I was in Ponta Delgada over the Easter Season and it was wonderful to see this beautiful church and to hear the lovely music provided by a great choir.

In the heart of the downtown this church combines both ornate detail in the alter and chapels with simplicity in the nave. City gates are across the streets and surrounded by restaurants.
