HOW MANY STONES MAKE AN ISLAND
Storys of rocks and lava in Terceira Island

The Azores Archipelago and Terceira Island are the product of volcanoes, but the rocks that arise during volcanic activity are different and very varied.

For three days, we’ll walk around the island and see how, from art to defence, from vineyards to pastures, from paths to water deposits, mills and pastel and heather mills, the effort was to search for and choose the correct stone for each function, or the rightest placement, for each activity.

Fortresses, churches, mills, archaeological remains or forgotten stones and vineyards walls, come experience with Francisco Maduro-Dias & Paulo Barcelos five centuries of adventures and decisions in the company of our mother rock and its many variations.
