We had a fabulous time on the Camino de Santiago! Everything worked as it should have and all contact we had with anyone associated with EATours was very friendly, very helpful and totally professional. You can be sure that we will be passing the word. A real pleasure...

Introduction:
Faial Islandīs capital, Horta, is a regular meeting point for yachts and other vessels crossing the Atlantic, having played host to streams of caravels, clippers and catamarans over the centuries.

Nearby. 15 km from Horta is the Caldeira Cabeįo Gordo, a vast green 400-metre-deep volcanic crater in the centre of the island. Faialīs other spectacular natural sight is the Vulcão dos Capelinhos, where volcanic activity in 1957 extended the island on the west side, smothering a lighthouse which can now be seen buried in ash.
