Island of Fogo

Fogo - the island is an active volcano. 
The Pico do Fogo (2,829 m) is the highest peak of the Cape Verde Islands and the second highest mountain in the Atlantic. In the main crater -  the Cha das Caldeiras - the population is about 2000, despite the hot fumaroles and suphur fumes they plant several fruits, vegetables and the famous wine. 
The capital of Sao Filipe is located at the seaside and even today you can feel the flair of the colonial period. 
For hiking, Fogo offers (except the excursion to the Pico) an unforgettable walk starting from the Caldeiras down to Mosteiros -  through the cloud forests of the National Park with groves of coffee and bananas.
