We cruised to the Azores, to the island of Terceria. Thanks to a review on trip advisor, we rang Manuel and arranged for him to meet us at the port of Praia da Vitoria and take us on a tour of the island. He spoke very good English, was great company and his price was extremely reasonable for an all day trip for 4 people. He took us to a small fishing village, where he lived, to a Restaurant where we had an excellent meal. We would strongly recommend him. Tel. 963 349 576 or 918 969 872

Great street to walk to see things and shops to visit. Nothing more authentically Azorean than this. I bought boots and a purse at the leather shop, and some table coverings that were handmade at another shop...........just wonderful. Quaint and wonderful, NOTHING like this in American, and the buildings are stunning. Stop at Angra square (in warmer months) and have a coffee at the open air Cafe.........just great!

This is a great garden in the middle of the city. A lot of different plant from all over the world. Very nicely maintained grounds. Nice place to spend couple of hours strolling around or just relaxing. There is a monument/obelisk at the top of the garden and very good vegetarian restaurant/cafe right in the gardens.
It is also next door to the Museum of Angra.

Rua da Se (Cathedral street) is small in length. It occupies only 6 blocks, one of which is the Cathedral. In fact, the Cathedral is the only attraction of the street. Even in the concentration of cafes, it is inferior to the perpendicular Rua Sao Joao and rua Direita. The only thing that gives it charm is the slope, but the same applies to many streets in Angra do Heroísmo.

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. Stop by for some coffee and a snack. Just remember that the portuguese "empada" crust is a bit sweet - the Brazilian one is salty,. If u don't wanna risk, go for the croquette. It is really good!

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 eating out of my hand.
The garden is kept to a high standard as are the water features.

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 enchants anyone who visits it.

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! :)

Being the main drag of the city, walking the length is imperative! The town appears to be new to tourism, so don't expect many junk shops, crafty places, or T-shirt sales. I didn't even see an art gallery. It's a real working town! Cafes abound and I found at least 5 different brands of coffee being sold in town (yeah, I did rank them for myself). There are plenty of pastry shops as well where you could grab a quick snack. You'll find that architecturally the town has its own style--keeping in mind that there was much damage due to a 1980 earthquake. The town is spotless. I was fascinated with the designs of the cobbled sidewalks--very artistic!
