Nature & Geology
Another curiosity is the islet of Topo, a place of great natural interest. It is actually a Special Protected Area due to its seabird diversity. In the summer, legend says that cows swim to the 2-acre flat islet, which is about 1km away from land, to graze greener grass.
In fact, the story says that for the Espírito Santo party, a great fest as promised. One of the organizers decided to take 2 cows to the islet in order to graze more grass and get fatter. However, before the party, the ocean was very tough and it was impossible to go pick the two cows, but right before the fest, they appeared, totally dry. Religious locals thanked the Holy Spirit for this kind gesture.
