Horta | Town centre


Morning view from the Miradouro de Nossa Senhora da Conceição in SW 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 Horta remains an important destination for yachting and is particularly popular among circumnavigators.
