By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Lagoa do Fogo (on São Miguel)

In the centre of the island of São Miguel, the lagoa do Fogo, or 'the fire lake' offers sublime views. It is surrounded by a crown of mountains in the centre of the island, as a result from the latest volcanic eruption in the 16th century.
