Parque Terra Nostra is a botanical garden set up in 1780 by american business man Thomas Hickling who lived most of his life on the Azores and was married to a local woman.
He imported plants and trees from all over the world and they can now be seen at the park.
There is also a thermal bath at the botanical garden that you can use once you have paid the 5 euro entry.
There is also a hotel connected to the botanical garden that you can stay at if you want to spend the night there.
