Overview
More
Angra has had three city halls. The first city hall had a small square in front. Later, the trade from India and the importance of the city led to the construction of a larger square and a new building with lateral staircases, a portico with columns, and a bell tower. The existing city hall was built in the nineteenth century and was inspired by the Oporto's old City Hall. It has one of the largest and grandiose great halls in the country.

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
