Of volcanic origin, the island's name was born from the imposing image of it's volcano that, still today, is active.
Fogo is one of the most fertile islands in the whole archipelago, and anyone who passes by here does not forget the contrasts, the flavors and the aromas. Black, hot and tender green, the island that once produced cotton and coffee, which placed it on the slave routes, is now land of the unique flavor and aroma of wine and coffee.
The colonization brought to this land the traces of an architecture still preserved, to which there is no shortage of houses, icons of the history of its people. Fogo also invites you to enjoy beautiful walks not only for speleologists, but also for all those who want to know the most beautiful features of an Afro-European culture.
