São Mateus da Calheta Church

Angra do Heroísmo


The elegant Parish Church of São Mateus da Calheta is located on the historical centre of this lovely village, right in the southern coast of the wonderful Terceira Island, on the Azores Archipelago.

The present temple was built with the population effort, replacing the previous Church of the village, nowadays in ruins. The first stone was blessed in 1895 and the Church opened to the cult in 1911, having years after some conservation works.

This high Church presents proudly seven altars and two tower bells, housing in its interior ancient sculptures brought from the ancient temple, such as the worshiped 16th century Image of Saint Matthews and the Virgin Mary from the 17th century.
