Vila do Corvo with airport

WI_afc501.jpg

View from the vicinity of the Miradouro Sítio do Portão over Vila do Corvo in SW direction. Roughly 400 people live in the only settlement of the island of Corvo. They have to travel to other islands for all but the most basic services, using the harbour on the left side of the scene or the small airport shown in the background (opened in 1983). During severe winter storms, when both sea and air traffic are suspended, Corvo is one of the most isolated places of the European Union.
