Delighting your inner seafoodie in the middle of the Atlantic
On your next flight to the other side of the pond, stop by Azores for a few slow, delicious days. Occasionally overlooked by travelers headed to Europe, this charming archipelago is the destination for time travel. Visit its colorful palaces and forts to relive the thrill of discovery surely felt by Portuguese explorers first touching down on the shore. Channel your inner conquistador on the narrow cobblestone streets that still feel the heat from the glorious battles long gone.
For a full island immersion, enjoy freshly caught seafood that is proudly served throughout Azores. Choose your own adventure from an extensive menu of grilled, stewed, roasted or slow cooked tuna, mackerel, swordfish, lobster, barnacles or crab.
Up for a heavenly meal? Order monkfish under the secret sauce at O Pescador on Terceira, the archipelago's third-largest island. Vasco da Gama would have approved.
