Europe’s westernmost council is situated in the south of Flores island, surrounded by a landscape with deep valleys, inlets and steep cliffs. This blessed geography goes hand in hand with the beauty of several cascades that fall down to the sea or to idyllic lagoons surrounded by green landscapes at the heart of tranquillity. The most fascinating for visitors is Ribeira Grande cascade, offering a unique show with 20 waterfalls. The scenery provided by the cascade of Poço do Bacalhau is also striking, falling down from a steep rock until its waters rest in a peaceful lagoon. Other highlight of the municipality is Rocha dos Bordões, a true natural monument made of peculiar basalt columns with several water streams pouring down. Natural heritage seems endless here, and it is also worth highlighting the Natural Reserve of Caldeiras Funda e Rasa, magnificently set in green scenery with colourful flowers. In the town, town hall and main church squares, quite distant from the quay, are the main centres of urban town in the middle of the houses, placed here and there. You should drive along region’s scattered villages such as Fajãzinha with a beautiful 13th century church or Fazenda, where you should draw your attention to the Church of Senhora Santo Cristo dos Milagres.
