Just a recap on the location of the Atlantic Islands relative to Europe
and the location of Santa Maria within the Azores
and the Santa Maria island topography
We visited Santa Maria for the first time in June 2010.
If you are interested you might like to revisit the blogs for June (gives info on Vila do Porto etc) http://dutchlink.blogspot.com/2010/06/vila-do-porto-santa-maria-azores-29.html
