Azores islands

The nine Azores islands(Santa Maria,S.Miguel,Terceira,S.Jorge,Graciosa,Faial,Pico,Flores and Corvo) is a Portuguese archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, about 1,500 km (950 mi) from Lisbon and about 3,900 km (2,400 mi) from the east coast of North America. The Azores' most significant industries are tourism, cattle raising for milk and meat, and fishing.The archipelago is spread out in the area of the parallel that passes between through Lisbon (39° 43' / 39° 55' N) and 37° N, giving it a tepid oceanic subtropical climate, with mild annual oscillation.
