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.

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
