My husband an I recently visited Angra do Heroismo....this was the first church that we visited on our first day in Angra. We were very impressed with the architecture and how the church has been restored after the damage from the earth quake of 1980....More

The Se Cathedral is best viewed from the exterior as it's interior is less than impressive. Yes it is large but also dark with only small windows to let in natural light.

You can hear the bells from all over the town so why not visit this lovely church? We attended Sunday mass despite not understanding a word of Portuguese. The choir was wonderful.

A "must visit" that we found rather disappointing in comparison to so many interesting and richly decorated churches of Angra.

Outstanding example of early church construction. Climb to the top for outsanding views of the Angra harbor as well. Fall weather in Angra can be outstanding

This a beautiful cathedral that was completely destroyed in a 1980 7.2 earthquake and has been wonderfully restored. The cathedral is open to visitors but please be respectful; it is still an active cathedral.

While visiting Angra you must stroll past Se Cathedral. I did not venture inside but just strolling around the outside was nice. Beautiful building with a long history.
