    Vale das Lombadas

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you are going to Caldeiras da Ribeira Grande, just one foot before the Thermal Centre, there is on your right side a route that goes to this protected conservation area. The whole valley, covered by luxuriant vegetation, is the site of the naturally carbonated spring that provides the mineal water known as Água das Lombadas.

    At the bottom of this valley starts a trail to Lagoa do Fogo

    There is no public transportation to this place.
