Of great monumental wealth, Horta, home to the only municipality of Faial island that covers an area of approximately 173 square kilometers, is undoubtedly the most joyful and colorful city of the Azores.
Its marina, which is usually filled with multicolored yachts that Horta demand on an almost obligatory scale when crossing the North Atlantic, transmits to the bay and to the city itself a very characteristic environment reflected in a healthy coexistence between yachtsmen and residents.
