Terceira Island (known as “The Lilac Island”) is the second most populated Azorean island with 58000 inhabitants and the third biggest in surface area after S. Miguel and Pico. Terceira’s municipal seat is located in Angra do Heroismo where the Paços do Concelho (City Hall), a majestic construction of the 19th century, is an important example of the rich architectural patrimony of Angra.
After a violent earthquake in 1980 and the subsequent reconstruction of the city, a large portion of Angra’s historical center has been classified as being of “public interest” and is included in the UNESCO’s list of World Patrimony since 1986. Angra do Heroismo also features one of the best public libraries and archives in Portugal and also retains some important private art collections.
The network of streets of a town that is a monument in itself: the colorful “impérios” or chapels that bear witness to the popular devotion of the Holy Spirit; the walls of a castle that was a royal prison; the constant presence of history; the gentle undulations of a green countryside; the white triangle of the typical chimneys; these are all features of the attractive and colorful prism that is Terceira.
