Faial was one of the four islands of the Azores archipelago I visited recently.
This piece of Portugal sits in the mid-Atlantic, more than 1,500km from the country’s mainland.
Memorable moments of Faial: The captivating volcanic landscape and lighthouse of Capelinhos. The volcano last erupted in 1958. The delightful port of Horta, which sits in the shadow of Mount Pico.
