I was not able to get inside, and there were no hours posted, so not sure when they are open. From the outside the building is amazing, the architecture is beautiful. I would like to come back and see the inside.

Although we couldn’t get in, the church itself is quite beautiful up many steps to give you a good view of the town. The square below, off the towns main square has several cafes.

For me this is a gem of Ribeira Grande. Nice interior, beaitiful architecture and gorgeous view of the city. The church founded on June 4, 1507 - two months before the village was elevated to the village. The works finished in 1517.

We visited here briefly on our tour from the Carnival legend. It is a nice church but the view from the top of the steps at the church is fantastic.
