Ponta da Espalamaca
Rua Dr. Melo e Simas 10, 9900-127 Horta, Portugal
Ponta da EspalamacaThis vantage point over Horta Bay is definitely the best place to shoot that postcard photo. From here you can easily spot the other three islands that make up the Central Azores group—Pico, São Jorge and Graciosa. It is also a place of worship and pilgrimage, where a 30-meter-tall statue of Our Lady of Conception watches over the sailors who put out to sea.
