We hired a driver in a van - 6 of us. ($25 each) He drove us to vistas of the lakes of Sete Cidades. Very nice but not great for photography. Too little time at each stop. We should have taken an additional trip to...More

The church sits in a pretty park like setting with a tree lined walkway leading to its entrance. We were there on a Sunday morning and were fortunate to catch a glimpse of the services. Interior is nothing special.

Small church but lovely and tranquil location to visit! There is a tree lined path leading to this single-nave neo gothic church building . There is a central bell tower, nice altar. The church is open, friendly and inviting.

A pretty church with nice grounds. It only takes a minute to visit while you are here. A good cafe is just across the street.

We stopped here for a little walk around as we were touring the Island. The Church is quiet, and not too spectacular, but well kept. The walkway out front is lovely.

It is a small church right in the middle of Sete Cidades but it is worth to stop and take a look. If you like architecture, old buildings, or just having a relax and spiritual moment, this is a very good place. You can easily...More
