The Fogo Volcano, ex-libris of the
island, is the major tourist attraction
and reaches a height of 2829 metres.
Cha das Caldeiras, situated inside
the crater of the still active
volcano, is a village that provides
the visitor with unforgettable
memories through the richness of
colour tones, contrasting lava
landscapes with agricultural
plantations that produce the
famous fogo wine.
The houses, built from the black
volcanic stone, remind us of an al-
most biblical landscape.
The capital Sao Filipe is candidate
for World Heritage, and the narrow
paved streets, gardens with trees
and flowers and colonial
architecture provide the town with
a very special charm of its own.
