Bom dia!

By São Vicente Ferreira on the island of São Miguel of the Azores lay the remains of this whaling station. It was in use from the 1940s until the 1970s when it was closed down, partly due to heavy international protests against whaling. The plant was demolished in 2012 to make room for a public bath.
