Azores – Spectacular landscape created by the volcanic eruption of Capelhinos in 1957 on Faial.

The scenery was amazing – great banks of volcanic ash with interesting shades and shadows, cliffs and volcanic rock. Buildings and the old lighthouse were buried. A new lighthouse was built.

They had a visitors’ centre which served delightful pastel de nata.

I'd like to hear from you...
