Geocache Description:


IGREJA DO COLÉGIO DOS JESUITAS Construída pelos Jesuítas, a Igreja do Colégio de Ponta Delgada esteve encerrada durante 40 anos, tendo-se tornado museu de Arte Sacra integrando-se no projecto governamental de defesa e valorização do património arquitectónico e cultural da Região. Na Igreja do Colégio estão reunidas peças do espólio do templo, que se encontram à guarda do Museu Carlos Machado, e outras representativas da arte sacra regional. Com uma fachada barroca de uma beleza rara e uma talha de uma monumentalidade impressionante, a igreja que os Jesuítas construíram em Ponta Delgada no século XVII é considerada pelos especialistas com um dos mais excepcionais conjuntos existentes no território português.
