Caldeira das Sete Cidades, an important source of fresh water for the islands, provides a subtropical oasis of green hills, dense forests, and foggy bluffs. Formed by a prehistoric volcanic eruption followed by another in 1445, the area is actually a large volcanic crater. The resulting land offers an array of flora and fauna. Take one of the trails that will lead you up to the top of the crater, where you'll observe numerous lakes, the ocean, and the quaint town within.

An absolutely stunning place.

Amazing views above the clouds. Just have to know how to avoid the crowds.
