This was our first time to visit Portugal and to see this church was something special. We always enjoy visiting the Catholic churches in the different countries we visit and this was certainly a reward to visit.

This church has several reasons for interest.
As I understand, It lies in the area where the Portuguese first settled in the 15th century, and is the first church built on the island of Faial.
Half-ruined, it was rebuilt in 1675; And again the 1998 earthquake has damaged it (but it has been well restored).
But in my mind the main reason for interest was to read the commemorative plaque of the German (but perhaps of Bohemian origin) cartographer and cosmographer Martin Behaim.
Behaim lived in Horta for several years (1486-1490 and 1493-1506); almost at the same time of the first Columbus' sailing; he also shaped (having temporarily returned to the German city of Nuremberg, where he was born) the first European globe in the modern age.
It is fascinating to suppose that his staying in the Azores, along the itineraries that were at that time beaten by the discoverers, both Portuguese and not-Portuguese, sailing towards both old and new lands (Africa, America), has allowed him to build the knowledge useful to shaping his famous globe.

I was in shock to see the state of dis repairs that not only this church, but all on the churches in the town of Horta. Walls and ceilings caving in, exteriors in desperate need of paint, such was their state that one church was closed to the public. Nosa Senhora das Angustias seemed well maintained, but dark.

This is the big church in town and definitely in your view from the port and from your cruise ship. It has history and riches from the past and worth your visit, but not a long one.

I just stopped in here briefly as I was wondering around the city. The stone/tile work in front of the church is amazing. The inside is nice but not spectacular.

Beautiful church to see. The details are phenomenal! The church inside is cool in temperature and just gave me a very calming vibe.

The church was damaged during the 1998 earthquake but has been restored. It is open for Masses throughout the week and weekends.

The most striking feature of the church is the collection of family crests on the ceiling above the altar. Originally the first church on the island, rebuilt in the 19th century as a neo-classical church.

My wife and I visited the Igreja de Nossa Senhora das Angustias in Horta , Portugal on our cruise in November. My wife is Catholic and loves to visit all of these Shockingly Beautiful churches when we travel. The church on the Faial Island in Horta, Portugal was one of the nicest we have ever witnessed. This 17th century church is located towards the city's Porto Pim beach and seemed to be one of the best maintained church in the town of Horta. Make sure you don't miss seeing the family crests painted on the ceiling of this church.
