Amazing view

Amazing and beautiful view, well worth the drive up the mountain. We had to drive up twice, since the first attempt we had rain, but the next day nothing but blue sky.

It's one of the highest places in São Miguel, and it has an outstanding view from all the island. Must stop place.

The drive up to the mountain top in quite enjoyable and once you reach the summit the views are just amazing. Surrounded by nature Lagoa do Fogo is a must seeing. I drove there but there are organized guided tours as well which may be better for those who wish to explore less known trails.

This might be the most beautiful place I've ever been in my life. I was lucky to visit on a clear, sunny day. From my experiences with other sights on the island, you might be out of luck if it's cloudy.

a fantastic place for photography, nature at its best in beauty and peace, you need a car to come here or use one of many tour buses we happen to see there.

This is one of the high spots for beauty on the island. One can hike up to the rim or down to the lake. The tour busses all stay at the lookouts on the rim so it is easy to get away to enjoy the natural beauty and peace of the surroundings
