  • Cheap and nice to once in this fort with museum by walking. Nice view of ponta delgada. Very many military weaponry. Clear drawn up

  • It was raining and our last day with a flight home in the evening, and our hire car had already been returned. I think you get what Im saying. If you like war and weapons you will of course love it. O...  more »
  • Like much else on this island, but not more. It was difficult to create an impression of how they had envisioned that the arrangement would be. It would be the island's military history, the Fort's or Portugal's Azores ' contribution to military? How to go and in what order? Aside from that, they mix ages high and low in the display cases, and that the English translation is deficient if it even exists at all, so I still think that the visit was worth it and the €3 we paid to enter. They kept on and moved around the stands and cleaned weapons may have been a contributing factor to the messy impression. A note of warning for allergy sufferers who are sensitive to mold, as it is an old lava stone fort that was some rooms heavily beset with mold that can provoke breathing. The positive was that there was a lot of weapons of various kinds, and a great fast!

  • Too bad not all things in English is defined on the attributes. This visit we had better able to skip. By one exhibition space, you have seen everything.

Where to stay in Ponta Delgada

As the island of Sao Miguel's primary tourist hotspot and center of activity, Ponta Delgada boasts perhaps the widest array of the lodging options in the Azores. Check into one of the luxury hotels in the core, closer to the ocean, to treat yourself to swimming pools, spa facilities, and a host of other amenities. Alternatively, try a smaller guesthouse or private villa slighty farther from the sea to save a bit on costs while still keeping yourself within reach of the area's churches, museums, and coastal fortress. The city itself is relatively compact, so most of the hotels in and around the city center provide easy access to its historical sites and tourist attractions by foot.
