Great hike around the mountain and fortress to the top with incredible views. About 8 kilometers! We met a bunch of friendly cats near the top!

Well worth the effort to get to the top of the weather is clear. We trekked up the road using Google Maps. When he headed down, we used the easier walking path with steps and landings and beautiful plants and flowers that ended in the botanical gardens (Duke of Terceira’s Garden).

I can’t recommend this place enough. We spent a few hours there and enjoyed every moment. All of the place is in English, except temporary exhibit on history of the building. Was monastery, seminary , now a museum. It covers history of the Azores, 500 years which ties in to Europe and sea faring years , more recent culture, limited military history, recent major earthquake, cultural traditions such as embroidery trade, religion, jesuits, geology of island. It’s all here. And free on Sundays. Otherwise cheap 2 euros. Spend some time here,

On a clear day, book it to this view point! It’s fabulous! You can see the coast and the patchwork fields for miles! Worth the effort!

Amazingly beautiful and worth every step you need to climb to reach this beautiful garden with a tranquil healthy and mostly vegetarian restaurant. The views of Angra from the restaurant are breathtaking.

It is very easy to reach the top despite the great altitude (a bit more than 1000 m). Views are amazing. Beware of the fog and so please go in a sunny day and a oye early or late in the day

Cardinal-King Henry built "at his own expense" this cathedral in 1568 in the Se parish. It is the largest of its kind in the Azores. The cathedral boasts 2 bell towers, a tripartite portal, 3 naves inside a solid foundation, rebuilt from the original after the 1980 earthquake and the 1983 fire. It is a tranquil place that brings solace to the soul. It is not as elaborate as others, but its simplicity is endearing. It still has a chancel, a silver piece to the side altar, a Ming Dynasty vase and Jacaranda wood furniture in the sacristy. I heard mass here. It was inspiring with the melodic tunes of the organ and the singing. Payment is required otherwise, and even more to go to the top, but it is worth it.
