Category: Pico Island
Description: The museum of whalers is located in the old "warehouses" of whaling boats, these buildings date back to the 18th century and are open to tourists from all around the world. And although the last whale was hunted in the Azores in 1987, hunting techniques have not evolved since the Moby Dick era. The unfortunate recognition of a century of whaling culture reaffirms the desire to preserve the Memory of this "modus vivendi" that deeply marked the habitants of the archipelago.
