Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Monte Brasil, Freguesia da Se, Angra do Heroismo, Terceira Portugal

Monte Brasil is the remnants of a volcano connecting the south coast of Terceira in the central Azores, overlooking the city of Angra do Heroísmo. Monte Brasil is flanked by two bays: the Bay of Angra (named for the city) to its east, and the Bay of Fanal to its west, and was used as a defensive point during the history of Angra, resulting in the construction of various forts and redoubts, including the Fortress of São João Baptista overlooking the city.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Furnas do Enxofre, Porto Judeu, Terceira Portugal

This area was designed to secure the visitation of this natural monument, allowing on one hand, safe access to all visitors, and on the other, protection of the habitats through the use of rustic material, integrated into the landscape. The circuit through the fumaroles and northern slope zone was adapted to existing paths and complemented with facilitated access. A set of informational panels support the interpretation of natural elements is present.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Algar do Carvao, Estrada Algar Do Carvao Center of Island, Terceira Portugal

It is a remarkable volcanic chimney, which, contrary to what is generally observed in other cases, is not completely obstructed. With a 15 x 20 m crater it ends 90 m below in a clear water lagoon.

Duration: 45 minutes
