Impressive from the outside but absolutely amazing from the inside. Outside of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, this is the prettiest church I've ever seen on the inside. All the gold detail.

This Azorean church is truly ornate and allows time for peaceful reflection irrespective of religious ben beliefs. On most days it appears to be open thus would recommend visiting.
