The Azores

Where we are: The archipelago of the Azores is formed by nine volcanic islands located in the middle of the north Atlantic Ocean. This Portuguese archipelago is located about 1,500km(930miles) West from Lisbon (2 hours by plane) and about 3,900km(2400miles) east from  east coast of north America. Azores have about 240.000 inhabitants.

 

All of the islands are of volcanic origin, although in Santa Maria island there hasnĀ“t been any volcanic activity recorded since its settlement.
