Flores Azores Photos

These Azores Photos of Flores Island are breath-taking and pretty much speak for themselves.

Flores, Azores, is found at the western edge of the islands. Because of the location it has the most rainfall of all of the Azores Islands. The high amount of rain together, with mild weather, has created a lush landscape covered with flowers. Flores island received its name because it is covered in these flowers.
