Part of a national park, Pico Cao Grande is a volcanic peak remarkably reminiscent of a needle.

In spite of the obvious risks, the volcano attracts many brave hikers intent on conquering the summit, 668 m (2,175 ft) above sea level. Pico Cao Grande is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • L'ho visto come da foto. Paesaggio da Jurrassic park. Meraviglioso
  • Davvero emozionante. Lo si vede percorrendo la strada verso sud. Mi raccomando di scegliere un giorno non troppo nuvoloso altrimenti rischiate di non vedere nulla. Ci sono vari punti per strada dove fermarsi, quindi percorrete la strada con calma.
  • Vista desafogada e encantadora. Vale a visita ao país, o pico fica bem visível nos dias de sol a caminho do sul depois de São João dos Angulares
  • Vista espetacular da estrada.
  • Uma interessante monte ou pedra. Consegue-se ver a vários km
