749. Azores Day 8 | Caldeira Velha & Lagoa do Fogo

Leftbanked Despacito Caldeira Velha

Yesterday we visited a place called Caldeira Velha, a bit less than half an hour away from Ponta Delgada. I really loved it there as the scenery was beautiful, and you are immersed in nature. I just wish there were longer trails to walk around as we completed the whole place in less than half an hour (if you don't stop to take photos at every point, you can walk from entrance to the end in maybe 20 minutes). I think most people come to go in the hot spring/thermal pools though. At the moment they are closed due to COVID.

The island is full of hydrangeas. You can also spot some cows in the distance.
