Landscape

Each of the nine islands of the Azores has its own charm and its own distinctive landscapes.They also have a number of things in common–lush green countryside and colourful flowers, volcanic phenomena such as crater lakes at the bottom of“caldeiras”, plus mysterious caves, rock clefts and tunnels and, in the case of Picoisland, a majestic mountain. To visit the Azores is to enter a landscape unspoilt by human interference, a stunning environment that brings you closer to nature.
