Live webcam of the Casa do Flores hotel is located above the village of Lajes do Pico, about 200 meters from the Espaceo Thalassa whale watching base and the Whalers Museum. Lajes do Pico is one of three municipalities on the island of Pico, the second largest island in the Azores, which has preserved unique flora and fauna, mesmerizing caves, lagoons and natural pools.

The city was the first to be founded on an island. In addition to it, there are currently two more municipalities - São Roque do Pico and Madalena.

For many centuries Lajes do Pico was the center of whaling in the Azores, until 1980 it was the main occupation of the local population, making a significant contribution to the enrichment of the island. Perhaps the opportunity to get acquainted with this craft, as well as the amazing surrounding landscapes, attract tourists from all over the world to visit this place. Important urban monuments and museums of Lajes do Pico are associated with whaling, and its island of Pico itself is a unique monument of natural heritage, one of the most beautiful places in the Azores archipelago.

Despite its small size, the city of Lajes do Pico has historically played a very important role in the political and economic life of the Azores. Fort Santa Catarina, also known as the Castle of Santa Catarina and Castelo de Santo Antonio, was built as a fortification against attacks by pirates and corsairs that were once prevalent in this part of the Atlantic Ocean. On the island of Pico, it is the only monument of military architecture that has been partially preserved to this day. In 2006 this facility was reconstructed. Today, in addition to historical buildings, you can find a tourist center, small shops, an amphitheater zone, where various entertainment events are often held. In 2011, the fort was awarded the National Landscape Architecture Award.

One of the city's main monuments is the Franciscan Monastery and the Church of the Immaculate Conception, founded in the 17th century. In 1768, the church was one of the most beautiful temples on the island, but in 1830 it was badly damaged in a fire. Now it is a restored majestic complex, worthy of attention from tourists.

You can admire Christian architecture by visiting the chapel of Santa Catarina, built in the same 17th century, or the Church of the Holy Trinity, the first mention of which dates back to 1503.

The port of Lajes do Pico has become a kind of symbol of the island economy. The industrial processing of whales has been the main source of income for the city for two hundred years. The Whaling Museum in Lajes do Pico is one of a kind throughout Portugal. It houses a large collection of whale teeth and bones, as well as various tools used in this fishery.

Of the natural attractions, undoubtedly, the main one is the Pico volcano, as well as the Gruta das Torres grottoes - the largest lava tubes in Portugal with a length of 5150 meters.
