The Aqueduto do Carvão is stunning. It was not on my list of things to do or see but I am so glad that we stopped. Good parking - stunning contrast of verdant vegetation and black volcanic constructed aqueduct.

While we headed back to Porta Delgada we came across this aqueduct running across the valley. It was raining but the photo was interesting because of the haze. It made it ethereal.

One is surrounded by amazing nature, landscapes and seascapes. When the sun is out you can look for miles across rolling hills with grazing cows and framed by ocean. Beautiful. Pictures won't do it justice. We were driving around at the end of August with...More
