Terceira Island, Azores

Terceira is the edge of the central group of the Azores, discovered in 1450. Called Terceira because it was the third Azorean island to be discovered, initially it was called Jesus Christ Island. Because of its location, Terceira was a very important harbor in centuries past, and the main city of Angra do Heroísmo prospered with international commerce. Today, Terceira and Angra are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Set on a bay, the city is a wonderful mix of the cosmopolitan and the traditional.
