Why is Sete Cidades Worth Visting?

The lagoon in Sete Cidades is probably the most famous and well-known natural landmark in the Azores. The view of Sete Cidades is frequently chosen to symbolize or advertise São Miguel island and the archipelago in an area with so many breathtaking views. Legend has it that the blue and green lagoons of Sete Cidades were formed from the tears of a princess and a shepherd who fell in love with each other but were destined to be separated.

What to Expect on Your Tour?

Begin the trip by traveling in a comfortable van with a stop at a pineapple farm. Here, you get the unique opportunity to first hand see the fruit grow through its many phases and sample some freshly prepared liqueur. Pass at Pico do Carvão, where you can see both the north shore and the south coast of São Miguel, as well as the center region of the island. As the journey continues, head to the Vista do Rei viewpoint, which offers a distinctive vantage point over the Lagoa das Sete Cidades. Learn more about the Lagoa de Santiago on the walk down to the parish. Lagoa das Sete Cidades's shoreline begs you to make a little halt because of the area's tranquility so you may get the perfect shot.
