Ponta Delgada – Fajã Grande

Located in the northwest coast of the Island, this trail was once the main “road” between the Village of Ponta Delgada and the Village of Fajã Grande, before the sixties.

Cast in stone walls, “walls” of-hydrangeas, and shortcuts through some vegetation, this walk crosses different landscapes over the shore. It starts with the lighthouse of Albarnaz, which gradually goes away, the “huge” Islet of MariaVaz, the Islet of Monchique (westernmost point of Europe), the magnificent land-slide of Fanais (from the middle of the 19 century) that comes out of nowhere, together with Corvo Island in the distance. This trail has all the ingredients to create perfect and lasting memories.
