Porto Moniz Mother Church

The Porto Moniz Mother Church is dedicated to Nossa Senhora da Conceição (Our Lady of Concepion), patron saint of the parish.
This church, alongside the Town Hall building, was builded in 1660 but was completed only eight years later.
Its simple architecture showcases the main high altar in gilt woodwork and the Blessed Sacrament chapel, with its works of art. There are also several silk vestments, candelabrum, candlesticks and other silver items.
