Overview Of The Port Of Praia da Victoria

About Praia da Victoria
Praia da Victoria Terceira is a municipality in Portugal's Autonomous Region of the Azores. It is the second largest administrative division on the island of Terceira.

Praia da Victoria is located on the east coast and has an attractive, sandy beach, marina and shopping centre.

Igreja Matriz de Santa Cruz was originally built in the 15th century and restored after damage. Other import buildings include the Pacos do Concelha (Town Hall) and Igrejo do Senhor Santo Cristo. Parts of the old town wall which date back to around 1480 can still be seen today.

The small 16th century Fort of Santa Catarina, located south of the beach, is the only remaining fortification here.

Panoramic views over the east coast and town can be found from the viewpoint at Miradouro Riviera, at Ponta do Cabo. Here you can also find the 17th Century 3 naved parish church housing religious robes and statues from the 17th/18th centuries.

There are also a variety of colourful ‘Imperios’ (Holy Ghost Temples) in town, some dating back to the 19th century.

Popular activities include fishing, yachting, hiking and cycling along with horse riding, canoeing and surfing.

Handcrafted embroidery in natural white and red linens are sought after as well as traditional wickerwork and lace items.

Fresh fish and seafood, soups, pork and sausages feature in local dishes along with pizza, steakhouses, fast food and Italian options.
