Did you know that Azores are a mini-continent?

Europe Forum - Relocation, Moving, Local City Discussions - City-Data Forum - www.city-data.com
Since there is Azores Microplate, connecting three or four majour continents (Europe, Asia, Africa and North America), Azores. being a Tri-continental Archipelago, could be considered a micro-continent, with Pico island at its core. To make things even more complicated and at the same time exciting, only some islands in the Azores are situated on the Azores Microplate and since Portugal's tallest mountain, Mount Pico is in the core of the Azores Microplate, thus Pico island would be considered "The Mainland" of the Azorean Mini-Continent.

Take a look at the attached illustrations and link and make your own conclusion and comments.
