I found the architecture of this building very interesting, with a lot of ornaments and colorful paintings. Situated in the village of Sao Sebastiao it is perfect to see it while also checking out the church and maybe taking the walking trail (cca. 3 hours) along the coast...

The fresco is nice but need maintainance. The building is unique, so that’s nice. But in my view, all the litttle towns on the island are charming and unique. Would I come here to see churches or medival stuff, not really.

This is my favorite of all the Imperios on the island. (There are 72 in total). Whenever we came across one we stopped and took a look / photographs.

Imperios are all over the island and serve as shrines to the Holy Spirit. In the spring a festival to the Holy Spirit is held and culminates in the giving of food to the poor. Some of the imperios are very plain while others are very colorful. One of the most colorful in in Praia da Vitoria. Through the window you can see the crown, scepter and pillow given to the young person is crowned during the festival as the person to whom the holy spirit has been given. It's an interesting part of the culture which began praying to the holy spirit for protection as men went fishing in the dangerous seas.

This is one of the best Imperios (do Espirito Santo) that you can find all over the island. It is in front of the church.

The imperios on Terceira are rivals in a beauty contest. This one in particular is a thing of sheer beauty, just opposite the main church.

There are so many chapels dedicated to the Holy Spirit on the island it's hard to remember which is which. But they are all painted beautifully and well worth a peak.

This Imperio is unique and holds its own stories and history. It has beautiful colors and is great for photo taking, one should see all the Imperios of the island to see the diversity.

There are Imperios all over the island, near churches, but this is one of the few you can actually visit with an appointment or see through the windows, which are not covered with curtains. Imperios are an interesting part of the culture of the Azores!
