Hiking Tour Half Day – Ruins

It all starts at the Church of Nossa Senhora dos Milagres (Lajedo), also known as the place, where the Slavonia shipwrecked. In the beginning we notice that the green tones and the water fluidity will be in intimacy with us throughout the trail. We will admire wonderful landscapes, adorable animals (rabbits) and endemic species. Then, We’ll proceed our path near Rocha dos Bordões, a rare and beautiful scenery.

Here ,in this valley, something will make you feel deeply connected with a transcendent sensation. From this point, in a short time we’ll arrive to Mosteiro Village, where kind and hard- working people live in. Also, here lies one of the few identified pirates of the Azores, however, in the pirates’ land the best choice is going to the discovery of an uninhabited place. Caldeira used to be a modest village, although it had some larger houses.

Towards the asphalt road until the steep descent to Fajãzinha, we will be delighted with the unique flavors of the cheese in Pico Redondo.
