The azores were created by volcanic activity, the youngest island of Pico, the last of the islands to rise above the ocean, was also endowed with a dominant in the form of Portugal’s highest mountain - Alto de Pico. It rises to 2351 m above sea level, but it is rare to see its peak, as it is often hidden in clouds. If you climb the summit, you will be rewarded with a view of all five central islands!
Take a moment to visit the whaling museum, where you will see an exhibition of photos of caught whale-cuts cut in the harbor, whale oil processing machines, fishmeal and meat. And of course you can also see whalers.
On the largest island of Sao Miguel you can see the university and the beautiful pilgrimage monastery of Nossa Senhora da Esperanca with a statue of Jesus.
Thanks to volcanic influences, towns and villages have become unique places with romantic architecture.
The symbol of the islands are blue hydrangeas and the locals even serve as hedges separating vineyards and fields from pastures.
The islands are also dominated by breathtaking volcanic lakes such as Lagoas das Furnas, which are found on the island, famous for its thermal springs and hot springs, which the locals use to produce dishes that then have a specific taste, sipped by Terras de lava wine.
Enjoy unprecedented tall plants in tree alleys, where hibiscus, Christmas roses or azaleas grow to enormous proportions.
Terceria is also an important island here, where you will find beautiful buildings from the times of colonialism. Bullfighting usually takes place here every weekend, so come here if you admit this adrenaline feast, which, unlike Pamplona, is much more moderate and does not cause serious or even fatal injuries.
