We decided to experience Terceira Island by staying at this hotel built inside this 16th century fort and are glad we did as it really is an incredible place. The hotel is small with only 29 rooms which makes it quiet and friendly. Rooms are...More

Love taking visitors here. Good vantage point for pictures. Climb up the stairs in the turret. Easy walk from the city center of Angra along the waterfront. Hotel, restaurant and bar/lounge built inside the fort walls.

The Forte is located just around the Marina. We tried to visit it but it started to rain so it was almost impossible. Nowadays it is converted into a "Pousada de Portugal" Hotel. You can visit for free without being bothered by anyone.

Free to stroll around and admire the battlements and view, also a great hotel and restaurant! The hotel facilities detract somewhat from the historic ambience, but head up to the top of the fort for the best experience.

This 16th(?) century fort on a cliff side, once protecting the eastern harbor entrance of Angra, has commanding views of the city and harbor. Even better than just another old fort, this has been repurposed as a modern hotel within the old battlements
