This street is the main street in Angra, and it is a perfect display of why Angra is UNESCO World Heritage. The architecture, the cobble streets, everything shows how a town can be current without losing its ancient charm and feel. Laid back, beautiful, and buzzing with activity, especially during the local festivities "Sanjoaninas", Rua da Sé is unavoidable and... More

There is no way you can get to know Angra a bit better without walking on Sé. This is where you will meet the locals and tourists and from where you can get to most of downtown attractions. There is a confectionary just acrosss the street from the cathedral and the people who work there are very friendly and helpful.... More

This park in the middle of Angra is a great place to relax, enjoy the sun, the flowers, the birds. Plenty of places to sit down and think about what you want to do next on this amazing island! :)

While in Angra it is worth it to stop by the gardens, if only for a few minutes. Rua da Se offers a relaxing and tranquil getaway surrounded by flowers, trees, and nature.

When stopping for lunch at the square in front, we noticed this park. And it is a treasure! The elevations in the park are great, including all the different flowers and plants! Take the time to look around and have a rest on one of the benches, let the beauty of the park soke into your mind.

A very beautiful park, well laid out and surprisingly very clean. No trash, graffiti, etc., to be seen anywhere. Definitely a place I could see myself reading and relaxing in. Totally enjoyed visiting Terceira Island and believe a visit here for 1-2 days is well worth your time.

Very interesting building to visit. We were very lucky when we visited as the organ player and a classic singer were rehearsing for a forthcoming event. Be aware that it costs 2€ to visit outside mass times
