Castelo de Sao Felipe Jul 04, 2013
Castelo de Sao Felipe is located on the hill above the Angra do Heroísmo and it used to be one of the forts defending the town. Hill is called Monte Brasil which is now natural reserve and has great hiking trails. I went there around the noon but the main part of the old fort was opening after 2 o clock, so I did not get in to see it. Inside of the walls there is still some military base or administration so you wont be able to move everywhere you’d like. Fort hosts lots of old cannons positioned all over the bastions. You can walk along fortifications and follow the long wall that surrounds the Monte Brasil. There is also a nice church in the main part of the port that is worth seeing.
