Azores tailor-made holidays
The Azores Archipelago lies 15,000 km west of Lisbon, isolated in the middle of the Southern Atlantic. The nine different islands that make up this chain run from the largest, Sao Miguel in the eastern Azores, to tiny Corvo in the west. Ferryboat transfers make island hopping an easy and accessible option.
Favoured with a warm sub-tropical climate, the individual islands have their own unique atmosphere. For stunning vistas visit the 7713-ft high volcano cone of Pico Island, but for beaches and isolated coves head to Santa Maria with its beautiful colonial manor houses and white-sands.
Outside of Sao Miguel the most popular destination in the region is Terceira, located in the central Azores island chain. Here you will find the UNESCO heritage site of Angra, also the island's capital. The island's 16th century forts, the Baroque Battencourts Palace and the silver treasures housed in the cathedral, justify this town's reputation as the historic centre of the Azores.
