Travel Guide: Portugal - Azores Archipelago
Located west of the European mainland, Portugal’s Azores archipelago comprises nine islands spread over three groups. This grouping of islands symbolizes the beginning of the grand adventure of discovery that began in the 15th century and led the Portuguese to have a presence in the four corners of the globe. Of volcanic origin, the Azores are undoubtedly one of the last paradises in Europe - appearing often in legends of the lost continent of Atlantis. In this WatchMojo.com Presents video, we continue our travel series with a look at Portugal’s Azores archipelago, which is also the third stop of the 2012 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.
