TOP Destinations: São Jorge

November 24, 2013  •  2 Comments


Azores. For sure one of Europe's best kept secrets and as such maybe I should not be writing about it, but it's inevitable to share as it's a photographer's paradise. Azores is an archipelago composed by nine islands literally floating in the middle of Atlantic Ocean. This portuguese archipelago is divided in three groups spreading across 600km between two continental plates. 

Volcanic activity has been shaping these islands throughout history leading to the formation of multiple calderas and lava flows. The unique and constantly changing weather besides a challenge to everyday life is also an important factor contributing to the growth of its dense vegetation and unique species. Each island is rather unique but they all have in common their nature beauty that goes along with the rural life of their inhabitants. São Jorge is located in the central group and has a privileged location as it's surrounded by the other four islands of the group (Pico, Faial, Terceira and Graciosa) which can all be seen from São Jorge in clear days.

Let me then invite you to start your journey in Azores by exploring São Jorge landscapes and cliffs and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this amazing scenario:

Also stay tuned for proceeding your journey to the next islands coming in the following weeks!
