Lagoa das Sete Cidades
Sete Cidades, 9555 Ginetes, Portugal
Sunset over the 2 lagoons of Sete Cidades"They say" that the 2 lagoons that make up the Lagoa das Sete Cidades used to be different colours... one blue and one green, but in recent times they have blended together and you can not longer see a colour difference. Regardless, these lagoons are mindblowingly beautiful, particularly when the mist lifts and the sun comes out. We spent the better part of an afternoon exploring the area, had lunch in the town on the shores of the lake and a swim in the afternoon. But the view from the top is just unbeatable and the evening silence after the tour buses have left and the sun is going down is so peaceful... this is a place unlike any other.
