Angra do Heroísmo

Information

The lovely Misericórdia Church is located on the beautiful Santo Espírito Street, right in the historical central of the amazing Angra do Heroísmo town, classified as World Heritage by UNESCO, on the wonderful Terceira Island, Azores Archipelago.

The Church would have been built in the beginning of the 18th century, on the place where in 1492 the first hospital in the Azoes was founded.
In a sober Baroque style, the Church is characterized by its central nave surrounded by two bell towers, decorated in white and blue, outstanding from the surrounded buildings.

In the interior the main highlights are its six lateral chapels with wonderful sculptures, as well as several paintings attributed to the Baroque artistic period.
