Great walking trails offering dramatic views in all directions. If you want less exertion, hire a cab for the ride up and then walk down the road or trails.

For us this was one of the best moments during our trip to Terceira. The park is unspoiled and it has many walking trails that you can try. There are places where you can stop and do a pic-nic. On the path you can also...More

We visited Monte Brasil with a guided tour but would have liked to have had more time to explore its many trails and scenic views.

We drove a rental car up here. You can also walk or take a tour bus. This is indeed a beautiful area very picturesque and good for hill walking Whether you go on foot or by car, Monte Brasil is a must- do experience.

Peninsula and nature reserve overlooking the city of Angra. Need to go on a clear day or later in the day when the fog has disappeared. Locals like to come up over here on weekends and holidays. Great views.

It is an easy drive to the summit. Walking takes a lot more effort. Either way, the view is worth it. There are picnic grounds near the summit.

This mountain is just pristine. The fragrance of flowers was intoxicating. The rim of the crater is awe inspiring. It is the only place on the island where there are deer. You can walk up or take a tour as we did.

This is an extinct volcano/16th(?) century fort/ current military base. The last eruption connected Monte Brasil to the main city of Angra do Herosimo. Crater views plus a commanding view of the city and surroundings.
