View from the Miradouro da Vista do Rei in NE direction to Lagoa Verde in the foreground and Lagoa Azul in the background of the photo. This landscape is part of the caldera of Sete Cidades, which formed through a long and complex history of mainly explosive volcanic eruptions, leaving behind an assemblage of craters and lakes enclosed in the caldera of 5 km diameter. The village of Sete Cidades is shown on the left side.
