Horta with Cais de Santa Cruz and Marina da Horta


View from Monte Queimado in NW direction to the town centre 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. Horta's marina (right centre of the scene) remains an important destination for yachting and is particularly popular among circumnavigators.
