Maciço Montanhoso Central | Panoramic view


View from a promontory of Pico Grande across the hamlets in the headwaters of the Ribeira dos Socorridos in NE direction. The major peaks in the background of the scene are from left to right: Pico do Jorge (1691 m), Pico do Coelho, Pico Ruivo (1862 m), Pico das Torres (1851 m), Pico do Cidrão, Pico do Arieiro (1818 m), and Pico do Cedro (1759 m). The foehn clouds leaking across the ridge indicate a typical meteorological situation where humid air masses approach the island from roughly N direction.
