HOUSES OF THE AZORES
Portal of the World Council of Houses of the Azores
Welcome to the Portal of the World Council of Houses of the Azores! The World Council of Houses of the Azores, established in the city of Horta in 1997, seeks to congregate the Azorean Communities throughout the world; to divulge the Azores, the Azoreans and their culture on their respective areas of influence; to defend the interests of the Azores and of the Azoreans and their descendants; to serve as a bond between the Autonomous Region of the Azores and the countries or regions where Azoreans reside, thereby affirming the Azorean regional identity as an integral part of the Portuguese nation. In this portal, you can find information about the Council, its specific functions, and its thirteen affiliated Houses.
