The town hall visit is free but only takes about ten minutes to see. The second floor has two council rooms which are lavishly decorated. Interesting that there was a small polar bear sculpture in the display case given to Angra from Winnipeg.

Easy enough to step in for a look around while you are downtown. I think it's basically open during the work week, and you just step inside and ask the receptionist if you can look around, and she waves you in. We went upstairs and...More

After a good lunch we were ready for some more adventure & the Town Hall was right in front. The drizzle started so we headed in to explore. What a treat! The beautiful rooms upstairs are like candy for the eyes.

Very lively. Even though not many many people but night sight is nice with lights, live music. Should definitely go visit at night.

Well worth a short visit as it is free and open. An impressive building inside and out, with a lot of history and some fascinating artefacts. A local guide is helpful to tell the stories ans there are no information boards, etc.

The City Center of Angra do Heroismo overlooking the main square. We didn't enter the building but it seems you can do that.

We were pleasantly surprised that we could just roam around with no escorts to check out this place. It was unexpectedly interesting, although it would have been more so if we had some more context about what we were looking at.

This city center is unique in the Azores and probably in the entire of Portugal. Perfectly maintained and painted ancient houses, beautiful churches, a true festival for the eyes. No wonder it is listed as one of the top places to visit in the Azores...More
