Geologic Formation
Caldeira das Sete Cidades, an important source of fresh water for the islands, provides a subtropical oasis of green hills, dense forests, and foggy bluffs. Formed by a prehistoric volcanic eruption followed by another in 1445, the area is actually a large volcanic crater. The resulting land offers an array of flora and fauna. Take one of the trails that will lead you up to the top of the crater, where you'll observe numerous lakes, the ocean, and the quaint town within. Put Caldeira das Sete Cidades and other Ponta Delgada attractions into our Ponta Delgada vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Not to be missed! We had to go twice, because in the morning there were clouds and we couldn't see well. In the afternoon the clouds are gone, and we can have the view of the lookout. Exceptionally located!
