A convenient mid-way stop for seafarers crossing the Atlantic, Azores hotels have hosted visitors for centuries. Claimed by the Portuguese in the early days of exploration, these islands have a lot to offer those who stay here in Azores hotels. The capital of the island of Terceira, Angra do Heroismo, is recognised as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO on account of its colonial architecture that includes a cathedral and a castle set in a mountainous seaside landscape.
One of the main attractions of the island is the landscape itself. The mild climate, which rarely exceeds 25 degrees or dips below 10 degrees, provides a nurturing environment for plants and animals. Ample precipitation helps give the islands a lush and verdant cover, providing a stunning backdrop for Azores hotels. The warm Gulf Stream waters also make the waters one of the richest fish habitats on earth. Stay in Azores hotels and see pineapple and tea plantations, rocky volcanic landscapes and rich forests full of animals.
