Capelo peninsula | Cabeço do Canto and Vulcão dos Capelinhos

WI_afi017.jpg

View from the summit area of Cabeço Verde in NW direction to Cabeço do Canto (347 m), overgrown with laurel forest. The Capelinhos peninsula at the very W tip of the island can be seen in the background. It formed in 1957 and 1958 through an initially submarine eruption, but has since then been reduced in size by coastal erosion.
