The territory




The Lands of Priolo comprise the municipalities of Nordeste e Povoação, with a total extension 211,3 Km2 and almost half of this territory included in São Miguel Natural Island Park and therefore protected.



This territory is the only place in the world were it is possible to watch the Azores bullfinch, making it a symbol of the territory. In 2011 this territory applied to the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism (ECST) undertaking an ambitious participative process of planning of tourism and conservation and visitation to the protected areas. 

The European Charter for Sustainable Tourism was awarded to the territory in 2012 and since that date the action plan developed in this process is being applied.




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
