Welcome to Terceira Island – Azores, you have been in our minds for a long time and now, finally, you are also in our hearts, thanks to our Ambassadors who represent and well their sweet home.
There are 9 islands in the Azores where we discover treasures, find secrets and often leave love. The island of Terceira, which belongs to the central group, is betting more and more on the nature that makes it unique in its culture, in its religious heritage and in musical events, through the unique traditional bullfight to the rope.
In Angra do Heroísmo, a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, enjoy its streets and discover all the architectural landmarks that granted this status and look at Monte Brasil, which is an extinct volcano, which originated in the sea and embraced the city.
It is an island that knows how to warmly welcome its visitors, where families return to kill the homesickness that never dies and where the traditional Sanjoaninas parties shine between glasses of good local wine and the oldest cheese on the island – Cheese Kitty. Ending the Sanjoaninas is time of the Beach Parties and, in October, another edition of Angrajazz.
The most well-known postcard on the Island is the Patchwork Blanket where mimosas are mixed, surrounded by walls of stones and hydrangeas, and where green is the dominant color.
The natural pools are a gift of nature that man has managed to protect and adapt for the enjoyment of its inhabitants and tourists. And when you hear the cry “Whale in sight” it’s time to prepare the camera and shoot the imposing Whales and Sperm Whales who make their vainies to the Island along with joyful and playful dolphins splashes.
