The Azores – The Volcanic Explosion of 1958 + Parting Scenes

On our way out there was an exhibition showing the huge volcanic activity that had produced the huge cliffs of ash we had seen.

A great place to visit. We looked back as we left. We’ll be back.

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.
