Difficult to review a historical spot such as this. But, if you’re in the area, it’s a must do. The whole area surrounding this is beautiful, so just take some time and stroll the streets and soak it all in. Very much worth it.
The city gate doesn't look like much defensively, more like a decoration. With the church in the background it makes a great picture. The square is surrounded by a large number of restaurants, coffee shops and stores. I guess it's the centre of town
We passed this "portas" by luck when we were walking through the harbour area of Ponta Delgada. From our perspective a must to stop for a while and appreciate the feeling of this area where you can leave in all directions.
What a lovely square both night and day. Lovely buildings surround the square of much interest whilst retaining a quiet charm. But then in the evening watch the brass band with 4 piece rock band and what a great nights entertainment and for free !...More
