The current chapel of Our Lady Mother of God in the top of the same name, in Ponta Delgada, is the second that was built there.
The first was founded by Jorge Afonso da Costa Columbreiro, which was near his home.
We know, however, that in the year of 1915 was that old temple demolished with the claim that could as a target for German submarines during the first Great War.
The ladies made, however, the vote of the building again.
On March 25, 1925 was launched, the site of the temple earlier, the first stone after a large cortege left from San Pedro,
being said at the top of the Mother of God a Mass, the Vicar Herculaneum Augusto de Medeiros.
Within that first stone was placed a glass bottle containing the minutes of the ceremony, written in Latin by Father Ledo, Bettencourt,
then Cure of St. Peter.
After this act spoke the late Father Joseph Jacinto Botelho, crater, which produced an impressive sermon.
Soon after, construction began on the basis of a project architect Norberto Correia. Because the work was slow and in 1942 was itself incomplete,
the temple was occupied by Portuguese troops during World War II.
