Small but beautiful
Faial is small, only 173 km3, with a population of a bit more than 14 thousand. On this green patch, dominated by the volcano Cabeço Gordo with its Caldeira, the volcano of Capelinhos and the city of the sea Horta, there is so much to discover. Faial has a rich culture with influences from all around the world. It was an important trading place, a connection point of telecommunication, a meeting point of sailors and sometimes pirates. Faial is a true island of culture and nature.
