PICO Island - Sao Roque do Pico


Sao Roque used to be one of the villages where they were hunting the whales. You still have the ramp they would use to bring the whale's cut in pieces to the factory to make oil and different material out of it. The building remains the same but it is now a Museu da Industria Baleeira.
