Pico lakes exploration

Van Tour – Pico Island Lakes

Pico island

A thriving native vegetation arises in the natural reserves of Pico, with sighs that ascend from the earth’s womb.

The lagoons spread, liquid and serene, where once there were mountains and cliffs generated from a fire that consumed everything around. However, at present, the fertility and the natural art are all that is left from these abuses of Faith.

Getting acquainted with these unique landscapes, the few that are still intact in the entire world, is to walk a bit the path of life, from the birth and strength that only the first humans achieved…
