His big craters or caldeiras busy by lakes, the botanic parks of Furnas and Ponta Thin, the looked that suceden on the coast, the natural spaces protected and a wide plot of routes of hiking, will do the delights of the most demanding mountaineers.
The high index of humidity keeps the radiant vegetation along all the year; perhaps thus it has been baptised like the Green Island.
