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.

We had a good look round this Cathedral and it is really nice inside. It has a nice name “Church of the Holy Savior’s Cathedral”. Well worth a visit.

Definitely a mark stone in Angra!! Outside the statue of John Paul II. Indoors can be found information of historical facts. Should also be provided at least in English due to the tourist affluence!

You can't help but visit this Cathedral because it's on the main road. An important church but nothing that makes it really stand out.

This was lovely. There was a man doing restoration work inside. We could see how beautiful it was and also was going to be. Wow! Go here.

fully reconstructed after the terrible quake of Jan1, 1980 still keeps its grandeur, a wonderful pipe organ and many items of interest

We enjoyed the visit. My husband, who has never been in European cathedrals, strongly enjoyed the experience. For myself, having been through more than a few, I still enjoyed, but caution against thinking it will take your breath away. There's a quiet and understated strength...More

The situation of the main cathedral in the midst of town makes a dramatic statement. Over the weekend we visited, we noted this active congregation bustling to and fro from services, with pots of brilliant flowers outside adding to the scene. Try to see it...More

I love touring old churches. It was beautiful and peaceful. It's right in the middle of everything, so definitely take a look. (It was even open during their customary siesta time (12-2).)

Beautiful site to see. Many steps to walk too but it’s immense and magnificent. Structurally so pretty. Matches of the colors of Se Street.

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