You can't tell how old this church is by its appearance. The Church of the Lord Christ the Holy was built in 1521. However, everyone calls it the Church of Mercy. The church owes its appearance to the 1980 earthquake that partially destroyed the church. The restoration made the church look so young. Unlike most churches in the Azores, this church is two-nave with a colonnade between the naves.

A very beautiful church with a very special and beautiful sanctuary space. Just to sit and feel the presence felt by generations of our Lord's presence.

The blue spirals & facade with bring you in...then you realize there is not much to the church. Then you hear from a guide the history and realize that its actually very unique....where else in the world will you find a church with 2 altars!

The Misericordia Church (also called “Church of Mercy”) is about 250m (a 3 minute walk) from the Town Hall in the direction of the “Gates of the City” down on the waterfront (Portas da Cidade). It’s a striking beautiful sky-blue coloured church from the 18th century. Whilst there keep a look out for the bronze statue of Vasco da Gama which I don’t think too many people realise is there.

The Misericordia Church from Praia da Vitória has two churches inside. They told us that the two original churches from the 15th century were merged on the 16th century. Well worth a visit. The entrance is free.
