Discover the Azores Islands

The archipelago of the Azores is located in the Atlantic Ocean and extends in a southeast to northwest arch that covers 600 km (372 miles). It is made up of nine islands clustered into three groups: the Eastern group (São Miguel and Santa Maria), the Central group (Terceira, Graciosa, São Jorge, Pico and Faial), and the Western Group (Corvo and Flores).

The islands occupy a privileged spot where geography and history come together in harmony; thus, a trip to Pico, the tallest island in the chain at an altitude of 2,352 m, (7,716 ft.) is a must. The eastern-most island is Santa Maria, at about 1,460 km (907 mi.) from the European coastline, whereas the western-most is the Island of Flores, situated 3,750 km (2,330 mi.) from North America.

The volcanic origin of the Azores can be seen in the number of volcanic cones, craters and other features throughout the islands.
The land area of each island varies, with the largest one, São Miguel, measuring 747 km2 (288 mi2) and Corvo, the smallest, only 17 km2 (6.5 m2).

São Miguel - Local Festivities

The popular “saint day festivals” (festas populares) that take place throughout the archipelago of the Azores are a testament to the deep religious faith of the people.
From the traditional feast day of the Divine Holy Spirit (Divino Espírito Santo) that takes places in all the boroughs of the island to the feast day of the Holy Lord Christ the Miracle-Worker (Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres) held on the island of São Miguel on the fifth Sunday after Easter, there is no lack of events anywhere in the Azores from May to September.
