Fajã da Caldeira do Santo Cristo

Volta à Caldeira - Furna do Enxofre - Graciosa PRC2GRA


Trail Info

This trail begins at a fork on the regional road and the access path to the Caldeira [caldera], next to the lane of Canada Longa in the southeast of the island.

Start by climbing the asphalt road towards the caldera for 400m until you find a signpost at a fork. From here, walk along the perimeter of the caldera or head directly to the Furna do Enxofre [Sulphur Cave] located inside the caldera.

If you choose the first option, head right and walk for 600m until you reach a fork. Turn left and after 100m ahead, you will find a detour to the right leading to the Maria Encantada Cave, where there are several interesting geological formations. You will also find the viewpoint overlooking the caldera here.

Go back to the path and walk along the perimeter of the caldera, and you will see a large portion of the island.

Go back to the original fork, turn right at the access path to the Furna do Enxofre [Sulphur Cave] and pass through a tunnel. After 600m you will find a stairway leading to the cave. Take this, and then return to the beginning of trail along the same route.
