Alfred was enchanted with the Azores:

It’s like we’re entering a whole new world. We have discovered many things about the culture of the Azores and we are enchanted with its picturesque landscapes and nature. It can be cloudy in one place and two kilometers away  it can be sunny. That’s amazing!

Amaia commented:

I really liked the Azores, it’s like being on another planet. I have not traveled much and I’m not used to seeing places like this. It’s fantastic!

The Spanish duo have become a sensation in Spain since they were selected to fly the Spanish flag at the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.

The Spanish Eurovision 2018 postcard was filmed in three different locations on the island of Sao Miguel; Lagoa de Furnas, Pico de Ferro and Terranostra Nature Park.
