Nice small church on the top of the hill, interesting stairways. Look over the city is great. Just 15min from city center.

Part of Furnas day trip. Steps featured certain stations of the cross on the way to a cute chapel at the top. Wonderful views of the Franco island and its cliffs were a fitting reward.
