Monte da Guia
This ancient volcanic rock formation, dubbed the Caldeira do Inferno (Hell's Cauldron), has prime views over Horta and Porto Pim Bay. Its two craters filled with seawater to form a figure eight, which provided a safe haven for several endemic species to flourish through the years, leading to its classification as a Special Protection Area for its fauna.
