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 and
vineyard 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 a
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.
The Sobrados, colonial-style manor houses, are also very interesting. And if all these attractions
are not enough, Fogo is also known as a producer of coffee that is considered by many as one
of the best in the world.
