I visited this church on a solo trip to Sao Miguel. The road up was steep and windy but the view from the top was incredible! Both the view at the base and the top of the church was breathtaking! Would be a great place...More

Our guide stopped by Our Lady of Peace to allow us a few minutes to take in this lovely place. The views are fantastic and our stop was very worthwhile. Take a few minutes to notice the detail on the blue mosaic tiles!

We took a boat ride to the island and you get an interesting view of Nossa Senhora from the water. It looks like a large white cross.

We first noted this small church sitting dramatically on the ridge that towers over Vila Franca do Campo as we were walking back to the car after having our Queijadas fix at da Vila do Morgado. It looked intriguing and off the beaten path, this...More
