The Turismo de Portugal recently recognized the island of Faial. It was honored under the category of "Rehabilitation of public project," with the expansion of the Botanical Garden of Faial, sponsored by the Azores Regional Government through the Regional Secretariat of the Environment and the Sea. The Botanical Garden has received only honorable mention in this category, having been the first project of the Historic Route Lines of Torres. The project saw the recovery and expansion of the Botanical Garden, which has a public benefit in its landscape quality and is valued in terms of its botanical collection. The area of expansion is a new area with herbaceous plants endemic to the Azores and their habitats, increasing the ex-situ conservation of rare species in the Azores. This award is the culmination of a rigorous and independent evaluation of different variables of the Botanical Garden of Faial and is proof that it is possible to reconcile the conservation of nature, the main objective of the Botanical Garden, with its use in promoting the natural values of the Azores.
