The archipelago of the Azores, synonymous with pearls lost in the ocean, is located in the North Atlantic about 1. 500 km west of Lisbon. It consists of nine islands of volcanic origin and has an approximate total area of 2 333 km2.
These islands have a very quiet place, covered with stunning landscapes, where the blue of the sea and hydrangeas and green of the fields and mountains are combined differently from island to island. Its lagoons, a unique beauty, contain mystical charms that are associated secular legends. Its museums, churches and palaces guard treasures of art and history and its traditions, festivals, handicrafts and gastronomy remain alive, being a legacy of five centuries of settlement.
The Northeast County in particular is the best kept treasure of S. Island Miguel. Its untouched nature, with an extensive patch of laurel forest where dwells the Priolo, only bird in the world, the landscapes breathtaking, with the background sea of an intense blue and traditions of its people, is a refuge for excellence for those seeking a lost paradise.

The afflicted population raised a temple to the Virgin Mary in the summoning of Mrs Pranto. The small temple has subsisted there over the years and continues to be the subject of pilgrimages.
