Ponta Delgada (Azores)

The nine mountainous islands of the Azores were long a haven for Atlantic traders and explorers sailing between the Old and New Worlds. On the green and fertile island of Sao Miguel, Ponta Delgada was once no more than a fishing village. 16th and 17th century economic growth saw the construction of lavish palaces and churches of the period, many still surviving. Not to be missed are the twin crater lakes of Sete Cidades, just a causeway apart, but the one blue, the other green.

Praia di Vitoria, Azores

Praia di Vitoria is modern town with an old center, laced with narrow streets and traditional homes. The harbor is extensive and is accented by the small, pleasant crescent beach nearby. In the old center, visit the Igreja Martriz Santa Cruz to see the imposing facade and 15th century  architecutre. Intricate wood carvings can be found within the church, as well as alabaster sculptures and the original medieval fountain. Inland from Praia di Vitoria, visi the caves of Algar do Carvão, a protected nature reserve featuring deep caves with unique formations.

La 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.
