Abandoned Hotel Monte Palace on Sao Miguel Island, Azores

Abandoned Hotel Monte Palace on Sao Miguel Island, Azores

Along a quiet mountain road in The Azores is an abandoned hotel called Monte Palace. It was built just over 2 decades ago as a five star luxury hotel. Unfortunately no one visited it due to its extreme price and it was just abandoned very soon after.

20 years later it is over grown and seemingly deserted.
