Just loved everything in Angra. I really want to return as soon as possible. Monte Brasil gives You a nice view of the marine and Angra.

If you have the time and opportunity walk there, and get off the road. There are a lot of trails, all worthwhile. The saddest thing about the place are the caged animals, didn't liked those. But the view is amazing, the landscape incredible. Don't miss the place.

We walked from town up the hill to see the view of the city. There is an Army base up there and you walk past the guards. You can drive up too. This is a great place for pictures.

Coach stops here for photos. Great views across Anga and surrounding hills which provide shelter from the trade winds. johnep

Its in a great location with wonderful views of the city of angra and SO many things for kids of all ages. Hills and a track and many different jungle gyms. But they're starting to show their age due to being in the weather. Some bolts are getting loose and the wood is starting to bend a little too much... More

Living only a few minutes away from Monte Brazil after recently moving to Angra do Heroismo I thought I should write a review for this nature reserve. The reserve itself is somewhat spoiled by the local military barracks, which is nestled amongst the tree's and old fortifications but it isn't an eye-sore and is only visible briefly. The views are... More

There is nowhere on the planet that I cherish more than the city of Angra do Heroismo. My family traveled there last summer and spent a wonderful week together in town and checking out the rest of Terciera. My roots are here, so there is a special connection to the community, but travelers looking for something wonderfully different will find... More

It has a nice view over the city of Angra, and also it's quite a good spot to have a picnic with your family or friends. In the premises there is also animals, some in the wild other encaged.

By far the best location on Terceira. Views from the top of the Monte back over Angra are superb. We saw people walking to the top but, unless you're into that sort of thing, I would recommend a car (taxi if you haven't a hire car). Interesting armaments situated at the top - couldn't help wondering who they were there... More

Walking around this wooded cone to the south of Angra city is a delight, but it is up and down, which is just as well that you can drive around it too. The views are extensive and inspirational.
