ABOUT THE AZORES
The Azores is an autonomous region off of Portugal's coat making it a remote and untouched, nature lover's sanctuary. The Azores islands sit on an archipelago in the mid-Atlantic ocean making its climate a lush and distinct one from mainland Portugal.
The beautiful islands are characterized by a vast array of dramatic landscapes, fishing villages, green valleys and pastures and hedgerows of blue hydrangeas. The vegetation is lush and the scenery striking. From Faial, we can see Pico, São Jorge and if we are lucky during a clear, visible day we can see a fourth Island, Graciosa. The isolation of these islands allowed for different cultures to emerge on each one, varying across the islands and adding to the uniqueness the islands possess.
What is so special about the triangle islands Pico, Faial, and Sao Jorge is their proximity to one another being just a stone's throw away from the other. Faial, is home to the latest surface volcanic eruption in the Azores, vulcão dos Capelinhos, in 1957 and Pico, is home to the 2,351m Mt. Pico, making it the tallest point in all of Portugal (including the mainland) and vineyards sheltered by boulders. And last but not least, SãoJorge, being the largest of the 9 islands, is home to more than 80 Fajãs along its coastline. These tongues of land – whose surfaces reach up through the sea, are the result of cliff landslides and old volcanic eruptions, making them a sight to see.
“I have come to realize that the most beautiful thing the islands possess, and which completes them, is the view of the island across the way”.-Raul Brandão
