The main chruch of Ponta Delgada was built in the 16th Century on the ruins of an older chapel dedicated to St. Sebastian. The outer structure is characterized by a mixture of Portuguese Gothic and Manueline style. In the interior one can admire the works in carved cedar and other rare woods and the sacristy decorated in "azulejos" (=hand glazed blue tiles).
