São Jorge is an island full of cliffs, crags and fajãs, and it's one of the greenest islands in the Azores archipelago and the perfect spot for a relaxing  holiday

The island is 54km long and 6.9km at its widest point, and it is one of the apexes of the so-called "triangle islands", together with Faial and Pico. 

The contrast of the central mountain range that runs almost the whole length of the island stands out, with its rugged, jagged coastline, dotted by the typical fajãs that extend into the sea. The fajãs are small plains created by lava or landslides and there are over 40 on São Jorge, which has earned it the nickname island of fajãs. 

From the o the Fajã dos Cubres, with its crystal clear lagoon, tothe Fajã do Ouvidor with its natural pools, a tour of the island of São Jorge means admiring the land divided into plots for subsistence farming, the stone houses with three-pane sash windows, the waterfalls and the curious steel cables for transporting wood to the coastal plains.
