An interesting thing about the churches in Sao Miguel is that they are mostly covered by an electric frame with hundreds of lightbulbs. At night, the lights are spectacular. This church is in Ribeira Seca, near Ribeira Grande, the most important town in the north of the island, and it has more than four centuries of history. However, the current building is from 1830. It has three naves and a very nice bell tower. Its facade is decorated with marine motifs, like an anchor.
