Refuges in the Azores
Natural surroundings that have remained unspoilt and unchanged by the ravages of time, where lush green vegetation contrasts with volcanic formations and the blue of the sea. The nine volcanic islands that form the archipelago of the Azores offer you an irresistible week of romance.
Heritage of the Azores
The Azores are home to a rich historical heritage. Come and discover it. On the island of Terceira, the town of Angra do Heroísmo has been awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO thanks to its Renaissant town centre. Don’t miss the lovely traditionally-designed houses, the Sé (Cathedral), the mannerist Nossa Senhora da Guia Church and the Museu de Angra next to it, as well as the Capitães Generais Palace. There is also a wine museum in Biscoitos.
Sport on the Islands
The Azores are a natural haven of nine islands, perfect for anyone who loves sport and the open air. You’ll definitely want to go swimming in the Azores, given the warm waters off the coastline. And there are natural swimming pools inland too, formed by volcanic action. Boat trips, by motor or sail, are another attraction, with surfing, windsurfing and bodyboarding also available, with equipment for hire locally.
The sea bed in the Azores
Sail and dive in the Azorean waters for an experience you’ll never forget. The deep waters off the Azores offer the chance to see some amazing undersea flora and fauna. At the top of a great list of diving sites the best place to begin is off either of the islands of Flores or Graciosa. By Terceira, the Ilhéu das Cabras and the Cemitério das Âncoras (Cemetery of Anchors) are also both essential sites for any self-respecting diver.
