Now we go to the island of Sao Jorge, which is located opposite Pico. The 246 square kilometers cover just over nine thousand people.
The central island of the central archipelago, 54 kilometers long and 6 kilometers “wide”.
The ferry departs from the front of the already mentioned Whale Museum, and is less than half an hour from the destination Velas.
The island began to be occupied in the 14th century; The city gate of Velas was built in 1799.
We walk up to the edge of the city to Beira.
This is probably the football field blessed with the most beautiful views in the world, just outside the city limits.
There is no big life in Beira, I just climbed here for the view. Both temperature and ascending ranged from 30 to 45 degrees.
I think worth it…
We walk back nicely to Velas.
Almost all the settlements in the archipelago look like the town from The Busy World of Richard Scarry.
If you asked your 6-year-old child / grandchild to draw the perfect city on an island, you might draw a different post office, a police uncle, or a hairdresser, but they will draw a Velas garden in the middle of the city is for sure.
After sunset and pizza dinner headed to the accommodation.
I haven’t written the biggest joke so far: I stayed in a converted convent on Pico 🙂
