Crossing the 4 mile canal which separates the islands of Faial and Pico, the city of Horta welcomes you to this quaint island where everything looks both small and lovely.
The island of Faial has a surface area of approximately 173 km2. “Horta”, seat of the only municipality in Faial, is the liveliest, and most eye-catching town of the Azores.

It contains a great richness of architecture illustrated in its buildings and monuments.
The marina is generally filled with colourful yachts which stop here during their voyage across the North Atlantic. This creates a lively atmosphere characteristic to Horta which is revealed in the relationship between the residents and the yachtsmen.
