Today you'll embark on a full-day Azorean & East Coast Tour, exploring the beaches and history and stunning scenery the area has to offer.
Immigrants from the Azores Archipelago settled along the Santa Catarina Coast during the 17th Century.
In Florianopolis they founded small villages around the island where they survived from small-scale farming and cottage fishing. They left an important cultural inheritance in terms of architecture, culinary, folklore and a very particular accent that still keep alive expressions from Old Portuguese.
Some of the villages they founded, the “Freguesias”, still have examples of the simple but charming architecture they brought to the island. These communities, with their peaceful atmosphere, are also ideal places to try the delicious local seafood. You'll enjoy a seafood lunch in Costa da Lagoa as well as a return boat journey to Costa de Lagoa.
