Sao Roque Portugal

São Roque is a civil parish in the municipality of Ponta Delgada in the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores. The population in 2011 was 4,932, in an area of 7.21 square kilometres (2.78 sq mi). Its founding originated in the 16th century, although the first documents, referring to the São Roque date to 1563. The Azores Archive, stated: "A few miles east of the city of Ponta Delgada is the village of Rosto do Cão...The country homes of a few citizens are delicatebly situated in this village, and the soil in the vicinity is the better cultivated then a large part of the regions of the island..." The parochial church to St. Roch, remotes the 16th century, and was altered in the 17th and 18th century, and was erected over an older temple sited in the cliffs. The primitive hermitage was built in the 16th century; Gaspar Frutuoso, the chronicler and humanist was relatively silent on when it was founded, but referred to the 15th century.
