And now for something completely different

The Regional Tourism Association (Associação Regional de Turismo – Turismo dos Açores (ART)) is a private non-profit organization.

On all nine islands the association have 'Quiosques de Animação Turística', each of which act as information points for tourists and outlets for locally produced items. The wording below is taken from their website and may be edited down to be more compact. This may be done as early as the end of November.

The Regional Tourism Association's members are the Angra do Heroísmo Chamber of Commerce, the Horta Chamber of Commerce and Industry, as well as the nine Municipalities of the Central Group of the Azores, namely Praia da Vitória and Angra do Heroísmo, on Terceira Island; Velas and Calheta, on São Jorge Island; Santa Cruz da Graciosa, on Graciosa Island; Madalena, São Roque and Lajes, on Pico Island; and Horta, on Faial Island.

Objectives

The Regional Tourism Association's objectives are the following:

  • Organization of the tourism offer on the islands of the Central and Western groups that complements the work of the Associação de Turismo dos Açores (Tourism Association of the Azores) in promoting and marketing the Azores in foreign markets.
