Manta de Retalhos

Well-known skin "Patchwork" the landscape of the Mirador of Serra do Cume, is surely one of the most fantastic points of Terceira Island, if not the most unforgettable. From this high point and in the modern belvedere we have an incredible view of the São Sebastião dairy basin, the popular name of Manta de Retalhos. It comes from the fact that we seem to be seeing a "blanket" torn symmetrically in green and black squares, where the green grass mix with basalt, in a combination of colors and contrasts.

Interior of Terceira Island

Terceira Island, originally christened as the Island of Jesus Christ, was the third island to be discovered by the Portuguese navigators at the end of 1420, which gave it its current name. It is the easternmost island of the five that make up the Central Group of the Azores Archipelago - constituted by Graciosa Island, São Jorge, Pico, Faial and Terceira. According to data from 2011, Terceira Island is the second most inhabited island in the archipelago, with about 57,000 residents. To visit the island we advise you to rent a car to discover this true natural wonder in a more comfortable way

City of Praia da Vitoria

Located on the east coast of Terceira Island, the city of Praia da Vitória owns the largest bay of the Azores, in a scenario of great beauty. Having been one of the first settlements of the Island, began its settlement between 1456 and 1474. Formerly designated only of "Beach", it gained the toponym of Vitoria in 1829 when it resisted to the armed spanish armada with 21 boats, taking the party of the Liberals, even with much less armed forces, paving the way for the Terceira Island to become the main base of the Liberals, against the Absolutists..
