The territory




The Lands of Priolo comprise the municipalities of Nordeste e Povoação, with 101 Km2 e 110,3 km2 each, a total extension 211,3 Km2 and almost half of this territory included in São Miguel Natural Island Park and therefore protected (the SPA Pico da Vara/ Ribeira do Guilherme is also included in this protected area).

Therefore, this is the only place in the world where the rare Azores bullfinch can be observed. It has become a symbol for the territory. Also, many of the conservation actions in place since 2003 for the conservation of this bird and its habitat can be visited, turning the protected area into a living laboratory of ecosystem restoration.

Its history and local culture is disclosed through its natural and cultural heritage, in al parishes and inside the protected area. The Lands of Priolo are not only the most well preserved natural areas in the island of São Miguel, but also a good representative of living azorean traditions. Visiting the Lands of Priolo allows and authentic experience of the way of living in the archipelago
