sao nicolau

Daughter of "Morna" and "Sôdade", land of mysteries and an imposing culture, São Nicolau owes its name to the day of its discovery in 1461. In rugged shapes and steep and rural landscapes, magic disperses in the air and in the faces of its people, believers in a thousand and one legends and mysteries that still align their lives today.

From the colorful houses to the black of the cliffs, São Nicolau is a place of stop for lovers of ancestral thalasso-therapeutic practices, such as mud baths and sand baths.

Preguiça, Ponta Larga - Juncalinho, the old volcano (Juncalinho - already extinct), Ribeira Prata and Carberinho constitute crossing points required for those visiting the island.
