Its a fantastic place for visit, near Canário lake. Really simple, 2 lakes with side walk making 8 form. Good for a family walk, you have also some tables to enjoy a pic nic or nice chat. Keep it clean... and 😉 enjoy

Been here on the way to Sete Cidades. It was in the morning around 9am. The atmosphere was eerie the lake was surrounded by a thick fog. Good for a few picture.

We were totally surprised by how lovely this area is! We parked outside the gate, along the road and walked to the lakes along a gravel road (only about 10 min to the lakes) and arrived at the lakes with no one else there, it...More
