"Ilha do Pico" Ilha do Pico by JessieLang

Ilha do Pico Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 39 photos


Lajes means ‘Flat Rock,’ and it is the oldest village on Pico. One of the island’s two whale factories was located here. Whaling lasted longer in Pico than anywhere else, and they didn’t completely stop until 1984.

Pico has a lot of vinyards. The wine region near Madelena is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
