Flores | Northwest coast with Ilhéu Maria Vaz


View from the vicinity of Farol do Albarnaz along the sheer cliffs of the NW coast of Flores and across the Baía de Além in SW direction. The prominent islet in the right centre of the image is Ilhéu Maria Vaz. Ilhéu do Monchique in the right background of the scene is sometimes considered Europe's W-most point. However, the islet is located on the North American plate and there are areas of the European Union which are farther W.
