Fogo is an island of stunning  scenic contrasts.
The weathered magnificence of Ñàî Fillipe, a city with beautiful rustic squares and scenic walkways. With classical colonial houses constructed by rich farm owners, using the materials imported from Portugal and Western Africa . The extremes grow even greater as you head inland. Firstly you will travel through fertile rolling countryside then as the road steepens beside the volcanic craters. Heading Towards the breathtaking volcanic grey cone of Pico de Fogo.
Few scenes compare to that of the first sighting of the pico. The Pico de fogo is surrounded by craters that were formed during the last eruption in 1995. You can take a guided tour of the volcano and actually feel the heat emanating from the core. Incredibly, the family of an eccentric French duke still live and produce wine beside the volcano despite the volcano’s volatile history.
Fogo is full of beauty  surprises and mystery; your experience on the island o Fogo will be completely unique. There is no place quite like Fogo.
