Public Library Jul 02, 2013
Very nice old palace in the Angra do Heroismo made into public library. Originally this palace was house of the Bettencourt family and it is made in 17th century. First floor features old school reading room with very nice woodwork on one side, while other side is modern and gives nice contrast. Beautiful blue tiles with incredible imagery cover walls around the doors. Grand stairs take you to the second floor and walls are also covered with Portuguese style tiles and images of the fortification maps. Most of the rooms are administration offices but you can go to the second floor and look through the balconies.
