Our journey continues to São Vicente, on a road scattered with waterfalls, where the majestic green of the hillsides contrasts with the crystalline blue of the sea.
When you get to São Vicente visit the caves and the volcano centre and the Museum Centre – Lime Route or simply take a stroll through the town’s pleasant streets.
From here you can also go back up to Encumeada, delighting your senses with the luxuriant vegetation of the Laurissilva “laurel Forest “ or go on to Santana, discovering small belvederes on the way.
In Santana you must visit the typical A - framed thatched roof houses, the theme park and Queimadas, which is the starting point for excellent walks like Caldeirão Verde.
The descent to Faial is a pleasant surprise thanks to the impressive beauty of the surrounding mountains.
When you get to Faial you can choose between Machico or a visit the island’s interior, taking the road to Ribeiro Frio, Poiso and Pico do Areeiro. This peak is the island’s third
highest point (1,818 m) and here we can find beautiful rock formations reaching into the sky like timeless statues.
