Cultural Destination

The third island in the Azorean archipelago to be discovered and the first to have its capital, Angra do Heroísmo, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was initially named the Island of Jesus Christ, maintaining a strong religious inclination to this day. The architectural richness of the city is an open-air compendium. Angra do Heroísmo showcases palaces, more churches than you can visit, monuments, fortresses, gardens, and manor houses in an elaborate urban layout that reveals a rich, noble, and religious past, with the centuries-old Cathedral ensuring a prominent place. 

The spiritual profile and legend of the Saint

Discovering the history and spirituality surrounding Palácio Santa Catarina is another calling card, greatly enhancing the peaceful spirit of the place. Another reference that links history, legend, faith, and spirituality is the name of Santa Catarina, which baptizes the mansion.
