Vulcão da Caldeira and Horta with Porto Pim


Panoramic view from Monte da Guia over the S coast of Faial. The main volcano of the island (Vulcão da Caldeira, 1043 m) can be seen in the background, and Monte Carneiro (270 m) in the centre of the image. The foreground is dominated by the Baia de Porto Pim, and the right centre by the town of Horta, legislative capital of the Azores. The Morro do Castelo Branco appears on the very left side, whereas the rocky outcrop on the right side is Monte Queimado.
