"Pico" Ilha do Pico by tolovajka

Ilha do Pico Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 39 photos

Pico belongs to the central group of islands and is named after its imposing mountain, Pico (2351 m high), which is the highest mountain in Portugal.

In the past, whale hunting was an important source of wealth. Two museums (in São Roque and in Lajes) shows you the story of the "baleeiros", the whale hunters.

Pico is also known for its wine. The typical vineyards and the old country houses in black volcanic stone represent in fact one of the most typical characteristics of the island.
