"The land that time forgot" Ilha das Flores by AnitaJRT
Ilha das Flores Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 39 photos
The island of Flores, most northerly of the Azores group and sited somewhat remote from it's companions, is literally the island of 'flowers', carpeted with numerous wildflowers and hydrangea clusters among impossibly green hills and whitewashed villages. Main features of the island are the seven serene lakes in volcanic craters and the Enxareus Grotto, a huge volcanic cave. The main town, Lajes, is a picturesque fishing port set in green fields. All the towns and villages have their historic chapels and churches to be admired, and Flores also features watermills and windmills, and an ethnographic museum in the town of Santa Cruz which displays objects relating to the activities of the island population: fishing, whaling and praying. Near the village of Fajazinha is the stunning Ribeira Grande waterfall with a massive 984ft (300m) drop.
