“In the Azores, the sunny area where the vineyard, the banana-tree and the wheat are cultivated is limited to the seaside; on the slopes, is the maize and the sweet potato, which are the basis of food nourishment; at the peaks, involved in clouds from 400-600m, the pastures replace the primitive thicket, and the separation between the pasturage and agriculture is total.”

(Geografia da Expansão Portuguesa, 1961, p. 14)
