Corvo

Tiny Corvo is the most northerly island of the Azores.

The first (and only) permanent settlement was established at Vila do Porto in the mid-to-late 1500s, and is currently home to around 450 residents. The island’s landscape is dominated by its caldera – the collapsed remnants of a kilometre-high caldera which formed 430,000 years ago. Together with Flores and Graciosa, the island is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve – acknowledging the careful preservation of her volcanic landscape in tandem with sustainable human development.

In the 16th and 17th centuries, Corvo and neighbour Flores were vital navigation beacons for ships sailing the trade winds between mainland Portugal and her Brazilian colonies. The islands quickly lost their significance when the industrial revolution and steam-driven ships transformed Atlantic navigation. Nowadays, the island is a popular destination for the birdwatching community each Autumn, when migrating American species seek refuge on the island.
