Maciço Montanhoso Central with Curral das Freiras


Panoramic view from Boca dos Namorados in N direction into the Ribeira dos Socorridos with the remote village of Curral das Freiras, now easily accessible through a road tunnel. Pico Ruivo (1862 m) can be seen in the upper right centre of the scene. The foehn clouds leaking in from the background indicate a typical meteorological situation in which the island is approached by humid air masses from roughly N direction.
