More about VIP Executive Azores Hotel

Portugal

by micas_pt

Portugal is located in Peninsula Iberica, is bathed by the Atlantic and borders Spain. Apart from the mainland, there are also 2 archipelagos: Madeira and Azores.

Portugal is divided into 18 Districts (in the mainland), and 2 Autonomous Regions – Azores and Madeira.

In the following General Tips, I will describe each of the Districts and Islands that I have already visited. Unfortunately, I still haven’t visited them all. I have done pages for some of them; if I have a page about any location on the district I will add a link to it.

Travel Tips for Ponta Delgada

Convento e Capela de Nossa Senhora de Esperança

by mircaskirca

On the far northern part of Campo de São Francisco, parallel with the seafront, is the Convento e Capela de Nossa Senhora de Esperança (Our Lady of Hope), completed in 1541 and occupied by the nuns of the order of St Francis. This chapel's fame comes mainly from the cult of the image of Santo Cristo dos Milagres (Jesus Christ of the Miracles), whose statue is lavishly adorned with jewels.

The icon is believed to have miraculous power and a cult of adoration and devotion has been built around it. The gilded altar is truly remarkable and the 18th-century glazed tiles on the walls of the lower floor, by the Portuguese author Diogo Bernardes, are priceless. The icon itself is to the left as you enter.

Tours are available and the image may be seen between 5pm and 6:30pm every evening (and from July and through September from 11am to noon) by going to the side door of the convent. Once a year the image is taken on procession through the city, passing along the narrow roads carpeted with fresh flowers in geometrical designs.

Jardim José do Canto

by Avieira67

According to E. Goeze, in the 19th century, José do Canto Garden was considered the greatest private botanical garden of Europe.
In this garden, owned by the same family for more than 17 generations, several buildings exist today: a “Vicorian” greenhouse (adapted to Parties Pavillion); the chapel of Sant’Ana (17th century); a Manorhouse of the 18th century; and, the Palace, which construction began in the 40’s (the old house (16th century) of the estate had fallen in ruins as a consequence of a earthquake.
The palace was conceived in strict obedience of the neo-classic precepts of the Italian Andrea Palladio (1508-1580). The whole structure is made of basalt stones blocks cut into big parallelepipeds or cubes: about 3500 masonry ornamental stones were cut by hand. Woods used include acacia, old criptomeria, cedar and hard woods from trees that fallen with storms in the Park.
The garden is made up of several thousand species of plants, all of which were imported from nurserymen around the world. José do Canto was a hard working enthusiast who even had a list of species he did not want to grow in order to create his perfect garden! The Garden and the buildings have been classified as of public interest. It is registred with the “Botanic Gardens Conservation Secretariat”, an organ depending from UNESCO.
