we say that the vulcano in Pico loves hats... because this strange phenomena happens every once in a while. the word is, what that hat appears, the weather is gonna be very windy 3 days after. Guess what? It always is very windy 3 days after. Pico had one of the biggest hats I've ever seen today (almost across the whole island). Couldn't take a picture though :(

São Jorge Island has a very unique shape. very very long but "thin". Has one of the most beautiful views...has the majestic Pico island only 11 miles away... from this island you can see the other 4 islands from the Central Group: Pico, Faial, Graciosa and Terceira. Breathtaking views and super nice people :)

the castle at Angra do Heroísmo. Angra do Heroísmo means Heroic Creek. The city got this name for many reasons because a lot of heroic acts occured here... specialy the one where the people fought and refused to surrender to the Spanish King back in 1540. While that all of Portugal was under his command, my island resisted for more than 8 years.

City of Praia da Vitória in Terceira island. Praia da Vitória means Victory Beach. Got this name because a battle between two princes of Portugal (brothers) happened at the main beach of the city. Prince Miguel believed all power should belong to the king and Prince Pedro wanted to divide the powers (legislative, etc like we have today). Fortunately, Pedro won :)
