Azores location

The Azores are a part of Portugal. They have a population of 245,000 people. The average elevation of the Azores is 22 meters, which makes them less nervous about global warming and the sea rising than the Maldives.

These islands were possibly discovered as early as 1340, well before Columbus cross the Atlantic looking for India. They have been sporadically settled over the last 200 years, so they don't really have an indiginous population.

The Islands that make up the Azores archipelago are listed below in order of size:

  • Sao Miguel

  • Flores
