Vila de São Sebastião

Vila de São Sebastião

Just a 15-minute drive from Praia da Vitória lies historic Vila de São Sebastião, with a delightful collection of colorful buildings that can easily be explored on foot. Its Holy Spirit House—an imperió, or type of shrine to the Holy Spirit that is unique to Terceira—is considered to be among the most beautiful on the island. And the village church, Igreja Matriz de São Sebastião, may look relatively modest on the outside, but the interior is decorated with centuries-old frescoes.
