Serreta is a parish of Angra do Heroísmo, located at the western end of Terceira Island, about 22 km from the city of Angra do Heroísmo, the county seat.

The town is one of the best known in the archipelago of the Azores as it hosts the pilgrimage of Senhora dos Milagres, held annually on the second Sunday in September. The toponym Serreta, common in the Azorean toponymia in the form of serreta or serretinha as diminutive of saw, has its origin in the abundance of hills in that region of the island Terceira, forming an extension until the sea of the Mountain range of Santa Bárbara.
