Santiago | Chão Grande

WI_cv049.jpg

View from Miradouro Cruz de Picos over the community of Chão Grande in SE direction to the mountain range with Pico d'Antonia (1394 m), partly covered in clouds. 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.
