Santiago | Ribeira Pico d'Antónia and Monte João Teves


View from the vicinity of Purgueira in E direction down to the Ribeira Pico d'Antónia. The pronounced peak in the right background is Monte João Teves (755 m). 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.
