    Santo Cristo procession , Ponta Delgada

    by F.Lade Written May 24, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: From the beautiful and large place in front of the convent , The Santo Cristo procession starts the 5 week after Easter every year.
    The convent , the church , the place and the streets are then illuminated by 180000 60 W light bulbs , mounted in beautiful decorations.
    The streets are covered with flowers , carefully laid out in decorations, paintings. The main character of the festival is the statue of Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres , which were given to the nuns by Pope Paul 3 in 1530. And of course there are fireworks and music in the street and large festivities as people come travelling from far away to partecipate.

    Christmas tree from New Zeeland

    by F.Lade Written May 24, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: On the place in front of the convent , I spotted this tree which came from New Zeeland more than 200 years ago , today it has many babies around on the island. In New Zeeland it blooms around Christmas time , but here it blooms late in may, large red balls.

    Flowers

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: San Miguel Island is full of flowers. This flower is the simbol of the island (at least I bought one of them for my refrigerator). Even: walls to separate the fields are not made of stones neither wood but plants and flowers

    The village Furnas

    by F.Lade Updated Jun 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The village Furnas lies 46 km from the Capital Ponta Delgada inside the Furnas vulcanic crater . The small lake in front is called "The Champagne Lake ", because vulcanic gasses make the water bubble just like Champagne.

    The city Ponta Delgada

    by F.Lade Written May 23, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Ponta Delgada is the largest city on The Acores . My recomendation is to choose a hotel here and to take day trips around on the island , Hotel Atlantico Acores or Hotel Talisman are good choises .
