Panoramic view from the road ER 213 in SE direction to the village of Faial (left side) and the cliff of Penha de Águia. This scene illustrates the characteristic land use pattern in this part of the island: the lower slopes represent a mosaic of farmland and settlements, whereas the upper slopes are covered in dense laurel forest (laurisilva).
