The winding roads going up lead to a spectacular vantage point for an amazing view. There are picnic areas, playground for the kids, beautiful birds and deer in enclosures. Great visit for family with children.

Drove up to the top as wanted to take one of the trails but were closed for military practices but went up walking around the little zoo and the picnic area. Beautiful views. With the ride up.

Beautiful view of Angra do Heroismo after a short, steep drive. Walking trails also available. A small zoo and playground offer kid-friendly activities. Be sure to get up to the cross for the best views!

This has a fort, active military operation, WWII fortifications, deer, religious monument and volcano crater. I came here on a tour bus but it is accessible as a hike from town.
