Embracing nature | Moinho do Félix

Hiking Tour to Moinho do Félix – Full day

Sao Miguel island

A magnificent journey along waterfalls that crash over the coastal line and the curved arm of nature dwelling on the branches over the sea.

The walking is aided by a net of lovely watermills that, in the old days, ensured flour and sustenance to most part of the island; or by iconic fountains that granted water to the communities.

Through a photographic report or thanks to the impression saved in the heart, the images of this trail will live forever!
