whereHistory and Natureembrace each other

Located about 10-minute walk from the Historic Center of Angra do Heroísmo, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 1983, Quinta da Nasce Água was the first accommodation in the Azores to be classified as a guest house. The Main House, built in 1899, and the apartments, recently adapted and refurbished, are embraced by a farm with exotic vegetation, once a rustic, fertile and productive farm with perfect corners for dating, meditating, reading, or simply contemplating nature. The Quinta is the ideal accommodation for those who want to enjoy a getaway, as a couple or with the whole family. Regardless of the company, a peaceful and invigorating stay is always guaranteed, whether for leisure or business.

Angra do Heroísmo
Historical center classified since 1983 as World Heritage by UNESCO

ESTD 1983

Its centrality, its rich soil, its safe bay and its monumentality have turned Angra do Heroísmo into a city whose historical importance is recognized throughout the world. Linked to maritime expansion, this port city was an unavoidable stop for the fleets from South America, Africa and the Indies. Here people traded in spices, precious metals from the Americas, fine fabrics, wood, ivory, temperas and religious imagery. It was in Angra where Philip II built his greatest fortress, considered to be the largest stronghold of Europe, following the 1580-83 succession crisis, during which heroically Portugal was only the island of Terceira, the last remaining piece of the former kingdom.

"Antes morrer livres que em paz sujeitos"

Motto taken from a letter written on February 13, 1582, by Ciprião de Figueiredo, then Corregidor of the Azores and a great supporter of D. António I, Prior of Crato, to King Filipe II of Castile, refusing him the subjection of Terceira Island in exchange of various favors.
