Situated in the northeast of São Miguel island, this council presents elevated steep coastlines over the sea with sometimes wild mountain landscapes of harsh climates and an intense beauty. The air is pure here, the gardens and the road edges are impeccably well-preserved and there is a peaceful environment. Some of the best Azorean viewpoints are located in this municipality, offering breathtaking views, such as Ponta da Madrugada (even more spectacular at sunrise), Pico do Bartolomeu, Pesqueiro, Ponta do Sossego and Lomba do Cavaleiro, where the oldest lighthouse in the archipelago is located. The town has few exemplars of architectural heritage, except the main church and some 18th century houses. However, Nordeste is still a fabulous trip destination, mainly for all those who love to be in contact with nature. The main proof of this is the idyllic Natural Park of Ribeira dos Caldeirões, presenting a green landscape and many water mills. As far as beaches are concerned, it is worth highlighting Lombo Gordo beach, an isolated beach of calm waters. This is also the most rural council of São Miguel island, producing plenty of potatoes and corn, but also tea and pineapple, a typical product of the Azores. 199
