This was our first day of hiking on Terceira. We parked by the old fort and the hiked the full area. Hiking was easy, trails were well marked and easy to follow. The scenery was wonderful and well worth the effort.

This place is so beautiful and spiritual! Amazing place to go and see, especially the cannons and the monument to those before us.

Beautiful nature and vulcano. You have "miradouros" (viewpoints) and recommend to spend few hours to visit them all. Also, you have toilets and places for bbq.

Nice hiking area. Can also drive to top for a great view of the city and port. Only place where there are deer on the island. No cost.

If you want some good photos, try this place. Army guns, sea, volcanos, city landscape, animals and trees, you can find a lot of nice elements. A must see place in the island ;)

At the top the views along the coast and across the city are great and there are walking possibilities, but there are few real attractions. Watching the troops from the nearby fort on their exercises was quite entertaining, however.

Fairly strenuous ascent but worth it for the views over Angra from the top. Also nice flowers and vegetation on the way up, and cats, hens and deer feeding side by side in harmony at the top! Also some small aviaries but didn't visit those.
