Museo Carlos Machado

Situated in the former Santo André Convent, this eccentric museum features a variety of artefacts from Azorean Natural History (zoology, botanic, geology, mineralogy). As well as this, it is home to a jaw-dropping sacristy, sacred art and sculpture collection.

Do & See

Natural wonders greet you at every corner in these otherworldly islands. The nine islands of the Azores are in fact some of the world's highest mountains, and most interesting volcanic formations. Lakes and rivers, forest reserves, natural and recreational parks, protected landscape areas, endemic flora and fauna, and rare ecosystems combine to provide endless possibilities for those who venture off the beaten path.
