And our guide said the locals sometimes would come for worship. The way leading here from the hillside was first zipzag then smooth with beautiful views on both sides.

just a short drive from Horta, this miradoura gives a lovely view, especially if the weather is cooperating with sun ! It was nice to see the contrast of the city and the surrounding greenery.

This is a great viewpoint to see Horta, Faial and out to Pico, even Sao Jorge beyond on a good day (I think we could just make out the smaller islands in the distance one day). It's obviously a popular spot for locals and tourists...More

Weather plays the main role in the Azores, no exception in Faial and of course at Miradouro Nossa Senhora da Conceicao. Very good place for a stop when going or returning from a "possible" Caldeira visit. Nice also to use it as a pic-nic site.

We were on our way to the Caldeira and stopped at this miradouro - well worth the stop - you get great views of Horta Marina and the town! And a beautiful statue of Our Lady of Conception.

We initially struggled to find this viewpoint which is located on the main road north of Horta, towards Praia do Almoxarife. However, once found there is no missing it due to the size of the cross. There are a few simple benches at this spot...More
