Sào Jorge Print E-mail


The island of Sao Jorge, formed by a mountain range, is long and narrow with a steep and high coastline of basaltic rocks of reddish colour. This island is the wildest of the Azores with unexpected bays opening up amongst the forest covered slopes. The island’s chief town is Vila da Velas with less than 6000 inhabitants who live of agriculture, fishing and wood export. The sea grotto of Caldeira do Santo Cristo is spectacular and a visit is truly recommended.
