What to see in Horta

Horta, a picturesque town on Faial Island in the Azores, beckons with its vibrant harbour, colourful marina and stunning natural landscapes. Dive into its maritime history, admire the whimsical artwork adorning its streets and embark on adventures to explore the island's volcanic wonders and breathtaking coastline.

Start your adventure in Horta by immersing yourself in the town's vibrant maritime atmosphere at its historic harbour and marina. As one of the busiest ports in the Azores, Horta's harbour has been a hub of activity for centuries, serving as a vital stopover for sailors traversing the Atlantic Ocean. Wander along the waterfront promenade, where you can admire colourful fishing boats, sailboats and yachts bobbing gently in the azure waters of the Atlantic. Marvel at the intricate murals and paintings adorning the harbour walls, left behind by sailors from around the world who have visited Horta over the years.

Embark on a scenic hike to explore the natural wonders surrounding Horta, including the imposing Caldeira and the rugged Monte da Guia. The Caldeira is a massive volcanic crater that dominates the landscape, offering breathtaking views of lush forests, rolling hills and distant ocean vistas. Follow well-marked hiking trails that wind their way through the verdant countryside, passing by fields of wildflowers, grazing cattle and quaint villages. As you ascend to the rim of the Caldeira, marvel at the sheer size and geological complexity of this ancient volcanic formation, which is now home to a rich diversity of flora and fauna.

Delve into the fascinating world of maritime art and craftsmanship at the Peter's Scrimshaw Museum, located within the historic walls of Peter Café Sport. This unique museum showcases a remarkable collection of scrimshaw, a traditional seafaring art form that involves carving intricate designs into whale teeth and bones. Explore the museum's exhibits, which feature exquisite examples of scrimshaw created by sailors from around the world, including intricate portraits, maritime scenes and decorative motifs. Learn about the history and techniques of scrimshaw, as well as its cultural significance to sailors and seafarers throughout history.
