The Azores is an archipelago composed of nine fantastic volcanic islands, São Miguel, Terceira, Pico, Flores, Corvo, Santa Maria, Graciosa, Faial and São Jorge.
Sculpted by volcanoes, the Azores have geological formations such as waterfalls, lava tunnels, crater lakes and hot springs.
The volcanic peaks offer spectacular views, with Ponta do Pico being the highest place in Portugal, at 2351 meters in height.
The Azores sky becomes full of colors and life thanks to the great diversity of birds that live there, just as its ocean is also full of life.
It accommodates several species of cetaceans, such as sperm whales, beaked whales and dolphins, not forgetting the exorbitant amount of cows that inhabit the islands that give the characteristic touch to their landscapes.
Among many common traits in its gastronomy, we have the fish and seafood that stand out for their freshness, the sweets and the magnificent beef from the Azores.
São Jorge cheese is a tradition, as well as one of the specialties made in the Azores, Cozido das Furnas, in which a pot of meat and vegetables is buried in the soil.
