Built with the sea in the back upon an ancient Gothic church, the Cathedral is an imposing 15th century building, influenced by the architecture of the Filipe ruling. You should draw your attention to the main chapel’s interior and ceiling sculpted in cedar, beautiful tiles, 17th century paintings and silver works, a sacristy with jacaranda furniture and oil portraits. Pero Anes do Canto, the former administrator of Terceira island fortresses, is buried in this big-dimensioned temple, the centre of the strong religious belief of the Azores. The cathedral was damaged by 1980 earthquake, as well as by a fire that devastated it later, determining its current configuration. It was classified Regional Monument.
