Best things to do and see in Azores

What popular events take place in the Azores?

Largely due to the Azores being part of Portugal and the strong Roman Catholic faith of the Portuguese people, you won't be surprised to find that the majority of the festivities happening on the islands are in line with Saint Days or religious holidays. One of the most well-known festivals is Festa do Divino Espirito Santo or the Holy Ghost Festival. On this day, the islands celebrate the Holy Ghost, the third part of the Catholic Godhead, and includes one layman being appointed Emperor or Empress for the day. This happens roughly seven weeks after Easter Sunday. One of the largest festivals on the islands is the Feast of Santo Cristo, held on Sao Miguel island. This event happens in Ponta Delgada on the 5th Sunday after Easter. The main event consists of the people of faith following the statue of Jesus in a procession through the city streets, and they make promises for the year ahead.

Is the Azores known for specific food/cuisine?

If you're booking flights to the Azores islands and wondering about the cuisine, you'll be glad to find many delicacies on offer. Bolos Levedos is one of the most popular foods in the Azores; it originated in Sao Miguel but is found throughout the islands. Bolos Levedos looks similar to an English muffin and is made from a sweet dough similar to US dinner rolls and is cooked on a grill. They're soft and sweet and usually stuffed with meat or cheese or sometimes have a burger inside. Cheese in the Azores is another famous delight offered to locals and tourists alike. If you're in Sao Miguel, visit places like Rei do Queijos in Ponta Delgado and try cheeses like the O Morro brand from Faial island. Soup is a popular dish throughout the Azores, and you'll find a variety of traditional soups wherever your Azores islands flight deals land you. One of the most sought-after soups is Sopa do Sagra, Mother in Law Soup. The town of Furnas on Sao Miguel island is home to an array of natural geysers, or calderas, with steam flowing up from the ground from the bubbling hot water. The locals use these to cook Cozido, a local stew made from meat and vegetables sealed in a pot. These pots are then stuck in the earth in the morning and slow cook throughout the day. Many restaurants require 24-hours notice if you want this dish, so book in advance to ensure you get a taste.

What can you see and do in the Azores?

The Azores are an autonomous archipelago in the mid-Atlantic belonging to Portugal. The islands consist of fishing villages, sweeping landscapes, hedgerows of blue hydrangeas, and green pastures filled with sights to explore. Head to the west side of Sao Miguel island and visit the extraordinary Sete Cidades Massif consisting of twin blue and green lakes surrounded by evergreen vegetation, with a landscape shaped by numerous volcanic events over 38,000 years. Just before the island was colonised in the 1400s, the last volcanic eruption is said to have happened. One of the best views is found on the southern rim alongside the Monte Palace hotel, long since abandoned, and is called the Vista do Rei lookout. A couple of other places worth visiting include Lagoa do Fogo near Ponta Delgado, Mount Pico, Furnas Lake, Parque Terra Nostra, self-guided tours through Algar de Carvao, or the museum and trails located at the scenic volcano, Capelinhos.

What passport or visa requirements are there when visiting the Azores?

If you plan on staying longer than that, you will need to contact the local embassy and be advised on which visa suits you best.
