Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Illustrated with gorgeous colour photographs and delicate line drawings by Czech artist Hedvika Fraser, this fourth edition of Bradts Azores tempts travellers across the Atlantic Ocean to these remote islands. Glittering blue coastlines and spectacular volcanic landscapes characterise the nine islands that erupted from beneath the ocean up to five million years ago. Botanical horticulturalist David Sayers leads visitors through elegant old towns and lush forests. Packed with fully revised and updated practical information, this guidebook features in-depth coverage of culture, history and festivals, and new advice on whale-watching. It takes visitors on a magical tour along Europes westernmost coast of Flores, visiting Europes only tea plantations and exploring the hot springs and gurgling mud pools of Furnas. For sheer escapism and a warm welcome, the Azores are hard to beat.
