Santa Maria

Santa MariaAfter the goodbye to São Miguel, and after a flight of 52 nautical miles south, about 15 minutes, we landed at the international airport of the island of Santa Maria, the third smallest of the Azores – 92 km2.
The first sensation is of peace and tranquility provided by the warm atmosphere, characteristic of the Azorean islands.
In the landscape, Santa Maria presents a landscape marked by the contrast of the plain of its western half, where the Airport and the parishes of Vila do Porto, São Pedro and Almagreira, and the other eastern half, much more rugged, are located the parishes of Santa Bárbara and Santo Espírito, and the highest point of the island, Pico Alto.
