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:

Angra do Heroísmo

With an important role in Portugal’s maritime exploration trips, Angra do Heroísmo, built its own image, with its historic center being classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Given the smallness of the island, it allows you to visit it on short trips covering all the beauty of the territory. A detailed description of what I saw and appreciated in the city can be read on my Angra page.

Visiting Angra is the ultimate goal of any visit to Terceira, but the island has many more interesting spots that can be visited from the capital. I suggest that you take a full day to circuit each half of the island, returning to Angra. Travelling to the east side, the most interesting that I saw was:

Travelling west, you may start and end in Angra, browsing some of the most interesting places in the island. In my trip these were the places where I stopped and had a look:

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.
