Terceira – 2 selected itineraries

Angra do Heroísmo

Terceira top attractions

If you have several days in Terceira, you can program two circuits, west or east, as I did. If you don’t have much time, then you’ll have to choose among the most interesting points those that you can visit. I recommend:

Cheese – Vaquinha factory

It seems to be a must for all tourists in Terceira to visit the Vaquinha cheese factory. It was a disappointment, as the “visit” to the factory did not go beyond a distant glance through translucent plastic.
Anyway, the trip was worth it because the cheeses are really good, and the landscape is not far behind.

Tradition Impérios

The most colourful tradition on Terceira island is the construction of small chapels all around, dedicated to the worship of the Holy Spirit. Witnessing that imagination has no limits, touring the island is to come across all kinds of colours, shapes and tastes.
