The Azores has got 9 islands and 3 groups ( Oriental, Central and Occidental ). Azores has volcanic origins so all its islands have a volcano, extinct or active. The last volcanic eruption was in 1979 in the island of “Faial” and the volcano is the ” Vulcão dos Capelinhos”.
“Pico” is the highest point/volcano in the Azores and also in Portugal. The biggest island and the one that is most worth visiting is S. Miguel because of its lake that is half green and half blue. Actually in the past that was a volcano but now it is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
The traditional food is the ” Cozido á Portuguesa” meat and vegetables boiled with steam of the volcano.
The sea around Azores is a Reef with lots of animals including Sperm Whales.
