Santiago | Ribeira Pico d'Antónia and Monte João Teves


Panoramic view from the vicinity of Purgueira in SE direction down to the Ribeira Pico d'Antónia. The peak in the left central background is Monte João Teves (755 m). Note that many steep slopes are used as farmland. However, the lush green in the mountains of Santiago only persists for few months each year. After the short rainy season, colours quickly turn to yellowish and brownish in October or November, and remain so until the following August.
