Velas Guide

What is there to do in Velas?

There are around 10,000 people living on the island of Sao Jorge, with many of them resting in the cosy capital of Velas. The quaint town adheres to visitors hoping to bask in the stunning surroundings whilst enjoying a drink at one of the bars, as well as the more adventurous types longing to explore the undulating terrain. The striking landscape is what draws so many to the island; verdant hills afford incredible panoramic vistas of the encompassing water and the quaint boats residing by the harbour. The 10,000 permanent residents of Sao Jorge are a relatively large number for a fairly small island, though there are nearly twice as many cows living amongst the locals. Unsurprisingly, there is a strong cheese industry in Velas – visit one of the cheese-tasting facilities to enjoy the local produce. After sampling a few tasty cheeses, bask in some mesmerising architecture showcased by the Church of Santa Barbara which displays remarkable structures and designs.

How do you get around Velas?

The town is very small so it can be covered entirely by foot.
