Introduction

Faial Island´s capital, Horta, is a regular meeting point for yachts and other vessels crossing the Atlantic, having played host to streams of caravels, clippers and catamarans over the centuries.

Nearby. 15 km from Horta is the Caldeira Cabeço Gordo, a vast green 400-metre-deep volcanic crater in the centre of the island. Faial´s other spectacular natural sight is the Vulcão dos Capelinhos, where volcanic activity in 1957 extended the island on the west side, smothering a lighthouse which can now be seen buried in ash.
