Faial

After crossing the 4 miles of the channel that separates the islands of the Pico and the Faial, the cozy city of Horta faces us like the living room of a mimosa island, where everything seems to us, at the same time, small and beautiful .
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.
