Perhaps because of X-Mas, loudspeakers (not only in this street) were spreading a good mood (by pleasant music). The walkways show an interesting stone pattern and the harbour is only some five minutes away.

The gardens are lovely and very well kept it's in the middle of the city. Keep in mind the stores close early on the weekends, most places are closed by noon. If you want to shop plan to come during the week. They have lots of places to eat and ton's of coffee shops.

This place was very cool. A great place to chill and absorb the atmosphere. So many beautiful sights from all over the world, delicately placed on the island. Quite the sight see!

A lovely formal garden but couldn't help wishing it was much bigger. Entry is free all year round and is a lovely place to sit and relax for a while. The pidgeons can be a nuisance as they "expect" food so don't be alarmed if they land close to you. During my visit in November, I almost had a Robin... More

Super cute area in Angra. Cobblestone streets are dotted with great little cafes and restaurants. There's some pretty unique shopping there, but be prepared to pay a pretty penny.

We strongly recommend Manuel Gomes whom our Agent had arranged to take us from the airport to our hotel. Next day he took us on a half day trip round the island. Speaks fluent English and is very pleasant company. Later he took us to see a Corrida in a local village and ensured we got a good safe view... More

½ day city walking tour of Angra do Heroismo, seat of the Diocese, and UNESCO site. Angra and the majority of the island was devasted by an earthquake in 1980. Rebuilding of the Angra brought with it new materials, specifically wood to rebuild the roofs. It is this untreated wood that today is causing mass problems with termites in the... More

Beautifull and burgeois! You could feel that Angra wanted to be much more then it got to be! The houses all painted beutifully, nice arquitecture, the main church and the movement makes these city with a cosmopolitan look!
