Nestling midway along Terceira Island´s southern shoreline, the charming city of Angra do Heroísmo is one of the jewels in the Azores crown.

Airy and cosmopolitan, it was deservedly named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983 in recognition of the strategic role the mid-Atlantic port has played over the centuries.

Dominating the cityscape, Angra´s 16th century Sé cathedral features an interesting interior of exotic carved wood, engraved silver and rare treasures.

In the centre of the island, a short drive north of Angra do Heroísmo, Terceira´s volcanic origins can be seen in the form of a 3-kilometre-wide crater (the largest in the Azores) called the Caldeira de Guilherme Moniz. Also worth seeing nearby are the Algar do Carvão (an enormous subterranean cave) and the hot steaming geysers of Furnas do Enxofre.
