Santa Cruz da Graciosa

Located in the northeast of Graciosa, Santa Cruz is excellent for observing the other islands of the Central Group.

The county of Santa Cruz da Graciosa occupies all the territory of the island Graciosa and its islets. The island has a coarse oval shape, 12.5 km long and 8.5 km wide. It is the least mountainous of the Azorean islands, reaching 405 m of maximum altitude in the east edge of the Caldera. This low elevation gives the island a temperate oceanic climate, characterized by the lower rainfall of the archipelago.

The relief of the county is generally flattened, marked by numerous cones of slag that give a markedly volcanic character to him, with a more accentuated relief in the southern part.
