Horta with Porto Pim


View from Monte da Guia across the Baia de Porto Pim in N direction to the town of Horta, legislative capital of the Azores. Due to its central position in the Atlantic Ocean and the Azores, Horta has served as an important hub for sea trade over centuries, a function which is reflected in a rich cultural heritage. The marina of the town remains an important destination for yachting and is particularly popular among circumnavigators.
