The adventure continues: take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, explore the fascinating underground world of Gruta do Carvao, tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Santa Barbara, and identify plant and animal life at Environmental Interpretation Centre of Caldeira Velha.
