Fortaleza do Pico

… to be renovated again

Fortaleza do Pico headline in JM

Today’s headline in JM addresses the state of Fortaleza do Pico (Fortaleza de São João Baptista do Pico to give it its Sunday name) and the new requalification works that the Regional Government will have to carry out again for the second time since the structure came under the responsibility of the Region.

JM recalls that the historic building of São Pedro was ceded to the Region in 2014 and, a year and a half later, the Regional Government ordered the rehabilitation to begin. The space opened in 2018, but it never saw much activity. Currently, the fortress is still open to visitors, however, it is facing advanced degradation and is going back to work with money from the Recovery and Resilience Plan.

The video below illustrates how the Fortaleza do Pico looked in 2012.

    • Different circumstances, Maurice. Sao Tiago houses a successful restaurant, if Government money was to be spent on it every restaurateur in the Old Town would be screaming.
