São Miguel Island
by Jorge Sanchez - 4 years, 7 months ago
Out of the 9 islands which compose the Azores archipelago, I could only visit one: Sao Miguel (Terceira Island serves as a NATO base).
In Sao Miguel there are several lakes, which I visited, like the Lagoa das Sete Cidades (lake of the seven towns), with a spectacular view.
I spent one week in the island, which was the airline condition to buy a cheap ticket, about 120 Euros round trip from Lisbon. I used to make daily excursion by bus to different parts of the island, and returned to Ponta Delgada in the evening to sleep.
Some evenings there were fado shows in Punta Delgada restaurants.
During the week that I was in the island I did not meet any individual traveller, only some Europeans who went there to play golf.
