Archaeology Tour

from  80

Terceira was first discovered by the Flemish in the 15th century…. or wasn’t it?

Recent discoveries show human settlement more than 2.000 years ago. Local historians haven’t made up their mind yet, but if you want to have a sneak peak in the history of the future, join the exploration of the first settlers.

This full day expedition will guide you along the lines of history by 4 ancient structures, some of them recently discovered by our guides themselves.  This activity is private tour for individuals or small groups.
