THE MYSTIC AZORES
A DESTINATION BEYOND WORDS...
Three islands of charm and character flourish in the heart of the Atlantic. Faial, the island of hydrangeas spreads around a spectacular crater; and the charming city of Horta, a stopover for great sailors, radiates a cosmopolitan atmosphere. São Jorge, the island-mountain, wild with its secret villages, stretches like a ship. The island of Pico stands its silhouette of majestic volcano under fumaroles. On its flanks, large lava flows covered with endemic forests and vast pastures, run down to the coast.
