cova santo antao

Photo of the week – Volcano Crater, Santo Antão

The spectacular scenery on Santo Antão culminates in the crater of the volcano – Cova. Here there is usually cloud, which swirls over the rim of the crater. The crater floor is good for agriculture as it is protected from the winds and has the cloud which brings some moisture.

Photo of the week – this picture is taken near Cova on the island of Santo Antão. Many visitors to Cape Verde see wide open spaces and lots of sand, but not all of the islands are like that. Santo Antão is mountainous and often green, especially after the rainy season (September).
