Historic Hotel Pousada de Angra do Heroísmo, São Sebastião
Historic Hotel
The construction of this castle started in 1555 and it was in 1575 that Manuel, of the royal court, was nominated as its first Captain General. The fortress has a one and only entrance situated on the north side which opens in the wall. In 1983, the main urban centre of Terceira, Angra do Heroísmo, was classified as World Heritage by UNESCO.
In a sixteenth century fortress
The Pousada de Angra do Heroísmo, São Sebastião, in is located at the top of a cliff inside a sixteenth century fortress; this is the only example of military architecture.
 
This hotel in Angra do Heroísmo is situated in a fortress commonly known as the Castelinho de São Sebastião and was ordered built by El-Rei D. Sebastião, from where it got its name, on a land overlooking the bay called the Pipas Port, which in that time was bought from Pedro do Canto e Castro.
 
The Fortress is closed in by high rising stone walls, today found partly in ruins; yet still retaining two stone sentries on its more prominent angles facing the city and on its bay side lies a turret, which until recently held the Portuguese flag from its days of grandeur.
The São Sebastião Pousada is found in the historical centre of Angra do Heroísmo, a city that was classified a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1983.
 
The city of Angra do Heroísmo was the first settlement of Açores elevated to status of city in 1534, having been a maritime harbour of great importance from the fifteenth century through to the nineteenth.
 
The rooms of this Açores hotel have a modern decor and furnishings. The suite and few of the bedrooms have balconies with a seaside view. All of the rooms in the Pousada de Angra do Heroísmo have LCD cable television, air conditioning and a safe.
 
The Pousada de Angra do Heroísmo, São Sebastião, has 2 pools: an adult’s one and a children’s pool, with Jacuzzi, tables and parasols.
Guests of this historically designed Pousada can delight from the delicious traditional dishes whilst enjoying the privileged view of the sea and the pool.
