Guide of the Azores – What to visit, what to eat and where sleep

Espalamaca Belvedere

Promontory over the City and Beach of Almoxarife. Excellent observation point of the hustle and bustle of the Horta Marina which is of international repute, being frequented by yachtmen who cruise the Atlantic.

From this point, one can get the true sensation of being in an archipelago, as it is possible to simultaneously view Faial Island as well as the Islands of Pico, S. Jorge and Graciosa. The 30-metre high statue of Our Lady of Conception lends an air of grandeur of the scene.
