The cosmopolitan town of Horta has in its marina a reference point to the Azores and the World, being a mandatory port to all the yachtsmen crossing the Atlantic. The paintings that make the walls and floor of the marina are the testimony of its passage, to recall years later, or because it says that the sailors who do not draw a painting will not reach its destination.
