Corvo is the smallest and the northernmost island of the Azores, with an area of only 17.1 km2. It has a volcanic origin and a population of approximately 384 inhabitants.
It is a picturesque and unusual village that features facades of black stone with white trimmed windows and doors, and narrow streets. A known remaining tradition is the craftsmen of Corvo, present in the wooden locks on the doors of the houses, symbolizing life on a peaceful island where everyone knows everyone else.
The places with the most interest to visit are the Church of Nossa Senhora dos Milagres and the Corvo Visitors’ Centre. As a natural attraction, Caldeirão do Corvo draws attention for its beauty and unique scenery, resulting from the sedimentation of a volcanic crater. Caldeirão is part of the Island of Corvo Natural Park, an important natural reserve that advocates the preservation of the entire region.
