Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Antigua


One of the oldest churches on the island, this large, white house of worship is built on the site of a 16th-century chapel. Set in a pleasant square, the most interesting features are the gnarled stone pillars supporting the wooden gallery, a huge oil painting depicting St Michael, and the attractive pink-and-green painted altar.
