  • The Caldeira – Also a great attraction, an enormous crater with 6560 feet (2 km) diameter and 1300 feet (400 m) deep. This area is classified as a natural reserve.
  • Monte da Guia – A mountain from where you can have a look over the town; also a protected natural reserve.
  • Ponta dos Capilinhos – One of Faial’s main tourist attractions. Here visitors can see the results of the eruption of 1957/8 which transformed the landscape, burying fields and houses. The old lighthouse can still be seen.

  • Port of Horta – Built in 1876, this important sea-port is a principal port-of-call for many transatlantic yachts. The sea wall is of special interest as it is covered with hundreds of paintings and messages left by the sea-travelers who call in at the port.
