A great lookout over Praia da Vitória! You have a parking space and you have a nice picnic with an amazing view!

Praia da Victoria as well as the island of Terceira in general are not as picturesque as the neighboring island of Sao Miguel, but that is what it is. A good view of the city and the surrounding area will be a reward for those who have overcome the simple climb from the city. Although there are those who come by car.

We enjoyed starting at sea level and climbed the stairs to the look out. The next day we drove to the TOP and I bet it took longer to drive than to just climb the stairs.

Lovely harbor area with benches for picnics and resting. Lots of interesting local sculpture and art in the adjacent area. Restaurants and bars all around this hub of activity.

A short drive from Praia da Vitória, this viewpoint gives you a bird’s eye view of the beach from the top.

I would love to return to this spot at sunset! The views are amazing of the whole waterfront and out into the sea. No charge and well worth the short drive.

Our cruise ship was diverted to Praia da Vitoria and we really enjoyed this stop. We decided to start by hiking up to Miradouro Do Facho and the views over the town, the harbour and parts of the island were beautiful! The hike up the steep steps took us a while, but we took our time (maybe 30 minutes). Wear comfortable shoes; it makes the hike up those uneven steps so much easier! It was so totally worth it! We decided to hike down the road back into town and the landscape on the other side was breathtaking! Walking through farms with the wonderful views...it was great!

This is a bit of a climb up the terraces but the views are outstanding, we were perhaps a bit early in the year but it was clear the island was about to burst into bloom.We walked back down the road, there is next to no traffic so very safe despite lack of pavements.Quiet, lots of birdsong, a spring idyll.Delighted by total absence of litter, so nice to be among people with respect for themselves and their home.

We climbed up to the top via the road as opposed to the steep steps. Wonderful scenery and breathtaking views.
