Photographer's Note

The islet of Vila Franca do Campo is located about 1 km from the town's coast, in a crater of an extinct volcano and is classified as a Nature Reserve
Vila Franca do Campo is a beautiful village founded in 1444, and was the first capital of the island of São Miguel, created in 1444
The importance of the village dissipated with the violent earthquake of 1522, leaving much of the buried town, perishing few thousand people.
The village has maintained its traditional serenity alongside a beautiful and interesting natural and architectural heritage.
