About the Azores
Located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, the Autonomous Region of the Azores is made up of nine islands, divided into: Eastern Group – São Miguel Island and Santa Maria Island; Central Group – Terceira Island, Faial Island, Pico Island, São Jorge Island and Graciosa Island; and Western Group – Flores Island and Corvo Island.
Despite the insular context, the Azores are not isolated. Technological innovations and the Internet helped the archipelago to develop, being, today, sought by thousands of people for leisure and, yet, being overlooked for business opportunities.

The structure of the islands draws the attention of many investors, entities and services. The Azores count, for example, with the headquarters of the Portuguese Space Agency and with a base of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, due to its geostrategic importance.
