What a to see in person. After learning about the history of this church and the Christ statue, you can feell the energy when you see it live. You don't need to be religious to relate. Stop by and visit. It's free and amazing!

Worth a visit
Jul 2019
At first I thought it was not a church as the facade is simply white with some volcanic rocks. The church is not big but it has a big golden main altar and pulpit. The walls also got azulejos. The interior design is really amazing.

This church is home to a miraculous image of Jesus Christ and is very much venerated in the island. Because of this, many locals visit the place to pray.

Magnificent little church.
Nov 2019 • Couples
The internal decorations are magnificent. Outside it is quite plain whitd walls and the usual big wooden door, it is well used by locals ax an active church. The internal decoration is wonderous to see. Walls in blue tiles depict olden day scenes, ceiling decorated in gold leaf. Just amazing!

Santo Cristo Church
Aug 2019
This is a beautiful, very old church with a magnificent gold altar. At the back of the church there is a metal gate where the statue of Senh;or Santo Cristo is kept. It is also very beautiful adorned with beautiful flowers.

Beautiful church

This was a beautiful church, quiet, cool, great place to take a break and enjoy the solitude and quiet of the inside versus outside with all the people. Architecture was fabulous.

Probably the most important temple for the locals
May 2019 • Business
This church has the Image of Senhor Santo Cristo (Ecce Homo); it goes out on a procession in the fifth Sunday after Eastern. This religious event is surely the most participated in the whole archipelago. Besides the image it’s worth to pay attention to the glazed tiles panels and to the magnificent gold carved wood main altar. Enjoy!
