FAIAL Island - Vulcao dos Capelinhos


The volcano of Capelinhos is the last volcano eruption in Açores, situated on Faial island, there you can still feel the what happened in the 50th.. The moon landscape made of dust, the ground full of 'bomba volcanica'.. It has been my favorite place in Açores. The lighthouse that have assisted the disaster is still there, and marked the place where used to be the shore. An amazing work of architecture have been realized that hide a museum in the underground. 



Le Capelinhos, en français « Petits Capelos », est un volcan formant un cap situé dans l'ouest de l'île de Faial, dans l'archipel des Açores. Le phare marque la position du rivage avant l'éruption.
