Ponta Delgada é o principal centro urbano do arquipélago; Angra do Heroísmo é património da UNESCO desde 1983.

Flores is the most occidental Island and, in my opinion, due to its maar lakes and waterfalls, is the most beautiful one of the whole archipelago.

Flores é a ilha mais ocidental e, na minha opinião, devido aos seus lagos do tipo
maar e cascatas, é a mais bonita de todo o arquipélago.


The sea water temperature in summer is about 23º C. But it is very hot in Ferraria.

A temperatura da água do mar no verão ronda os 23º C, mas é muito quente na Ferraria.

      Hi, Ali. Unfortunately I didn't guide you as I wished to. A few weeks ago I went for a dinneer with friends and we went to the restaurant "O Avião". It is probably a good choice for the quality and low price. Thanks a lot for your wishes!
