This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Caldeira das Sete Cidades, From Ponta Delaga 10 km, Sao Miguel 9240-113 Portugal

The Lagoa das Sete Cidades, located on the beautiful São Miguel Island, is one of the most famous places in the Azores Archipelago, and once it is understood, it is understood why.

This is the largest freshwater lake in the Azores, located in the volcanic craters that make up the Island. It consists of two lagoons (Lagoa Verde and Lagoa Azul), which promote a scenario of extreme and indescribable beauty and one of the symbolic images of the entire archipelago, classified as Protected Landscape of the Natura 2000 Network.

The Lagoon, whose maximum depth reaches 33 meters, and the maximum length of 4.2 kilometers, is surrounded by green fields of cultivation, framed by beautiful steep slopes that give it an idyllic bucolic and idyllic environment.

Legend of the Blue-Eyed Princess

In the place where today is the beautiful parish of the Seven Cities, there was a kingdom, where the beautiful and young Princess Antília lived, with beautiful blue eyes. One day, on a walk through the wonderful meadows of the area, the Princess falls in love with a green-eyed Shepherd, who was walking his flock.

Days passed, and in each of them the two lovers met in the same place, in the shadow of an old tree, more and more near and in love.

The king, who desired his daughter married to a prince of the neighboring kingdom, when he became aware of the growing passion, forbade the love of the Princess and the Shepherd. Desperate, Antília asked for her last encounter with her love, which happened in the usual place.

As they spoke of their sad fate, they cried so much that from the blue eyes of the Princess formed the Blue Lagoon, and from the green eyes of the Shepherd, the Green Lagoon formed.

Then the legend tells us that the two were separated, but their tears were forever felt side by side in the Lagoa das Sete Cidades.
