    DescriptionIllustrated with colour photographs and delicate line drawings by Czech artist Hedvika Fraser, this fourth edition tempts travellers across the Atlantic Ocean to these remote islands. Glittering blue coastlines and spectacular volcanic landscapes characterise this archipelago that erupted from beneath the ocean some five million years ago. Fully updated, Bradt's bestselling "Azores" provides practical information and unparalleled features on culture, history and festivals. The best walks are described along with information on where to eat and sleep and how to get around. Take a magical tour discovering Europe's westernmost coast - the island of Flores; visit Europe's only tea plantations; and, explore the hot springs and gurgling mud pools of Furnas.
