Pico do Fogo, Fogo island Cape Verde

Pico do Fogo on the island of Fogo

If you are visiting Fogo, or passing through on the way to Brava, a visit to the caldera is a must. The landscape is extraordinary, more like a moonscape. Pico do Fogo, the highest mountain in Cape Verde towers over you. There are people living in the caldera, there are restaurants and hotels too and vineyards. The lovely Chã wine is produced from here. The road through the caldera was blocked by a lava flow from the eruption in 2014, but there is a new track around the blockage.
