History of Sao Miguel

 Settlement in São Miguel began in 1444, after Prince Henry the Navigator introduced cattle to the island. The first inhabitants, from the Portuguese provinces of Estremadura, Upper Alentejo and Algarve, were later joined by Madeirans, Jews, Moors and possibly Frenchmen (a tradition recalled by the name of the parish of Bretanha - Brittany).The export of oranges to England brought São Miguel great prosperity at the end of the 18th century. The orange groves, however, were destroyed by a blight starting in 1860 but the introduction of new crops - tobacco, tea, flax, chicory, sugar-beet and pineapples – helped guarantee economic survival. With the passing of the years, these crops were joined by several industries and a growth in fisheries and livestock raising. Today São Miguel is one of the political and administrative centres of the Region, and an island with a relatively diversified economy that is experiencing marked progress.
