Flores History

Placed on the most western side of the group of Azores, the "Ilha das Flores" is 17 kilometres long and 12.5 wide, with a population of 4.500 inhabitants. The charming but rugged island derives its name from the quantity of flowers that grow in abundance due to its high annual rainfall. It was only in the 16th Century that farmers from Europe accepted its climate and started cultivating the thick and luxuriant land. In the main town of Santa Cruz das Flores, there is a small museum devoted to the fishing industry and farming.

Access to this island can only be made by flight but it does have a summer boat connection with the nearby small island of Ilha do Corvo.
