Lagoas

In the central part of the island, the seven lagoons surrounded by flowers. Lagoa Funda, Branca, Seca, Rasa, Comprida, Lomba, and Negra, are places of rare beauty.

Rocha dos Bordões

Is an ex-libris of the island, an imposing hill which originated from a curious geological phenomenon which solidified at high vertical streaks.

Poço da Ribeira do Ferreiro

A place of extreme natural beauty, an almost virgin place where silence reigns. It is well worth a visit. The lagoon formed by the waterfalls is known as the Poço da  Alagoinha or Lagoa das Patas.

Poço do Bacalhau

This cascade, located in Fajã Grande is about 90 meters high. Its waters tear the stone and fall forming a natural lagoon, which calls for a dive.

Gruta dos Enxaréus

It is an enormous volcanic cavity on the waterfront, 50 metre long and 25 meters wide between Santa Cruz and Caveira. It is one of the most attractive sites of the island but one can only reach it by sea.

Islet of Monchique

The islet of Monchique is the westernmost terrestrial point of Europe and for many years was used by navigators for orientation.

Whale Museum

The factory of the Whale is one of the most important buildings of the whaling architecture, built to use the whale oil, which was the first Florentine industry, as well as one of the economic activities that most benefitted the local population.
