Horta, Azores

Horta Wed 29 Apr 2020

Horta, Azores

Some say the Azores are a remnant of lost Atlantis, and some say they sprang from flowers dropped by an angel. Neither theory seems preposterous during the drive from sea level up to mile-wide volvanic crater rimmed with lush greenery and brilliant flowers. Looking out to sea, you may glimpse Capelinhos, the volcano that rose from the Atlantic only four decades ago.

Praia da Vitoria, Azores

Praia di Vitoria Thu 30 Apr 2020

Praia da Vitoria, Azores

Located in a large bay on the east coast, this pretty town boasts a long and attractive sandy beach, a smart marina, a nice pedestrian shopping zone and a very pleasant ambiance. Founded around 1456 as Vila da Praia, it received its present name from Queen Maria II in 1837 in grateful remembrance of the first victory of the Liberals over the Royalists on the 11th of August 1829 in a battle, which took place off the town’s shores. Praia’s centre has a pleasant pedestrian zone with many attractive shops and some notable historic buildings.

A variety of protected parks are accessible on foot and dot the remarkable landscape. The Musée de la Marine de Brest houses exhibits detailing the watery traditions of the town.
