Fajã dos Cubres - Ilha de São Jorge - Açores

 

It is classified as a Site of International Importance under the RAMSAR Convention. It is distanced from the fajã of Caldeira de Santo Cristo for about three km. It presents us with a characteristic lagoon of irregular shape that originates small islets, used for nesting birds. In this fajã there are good lands, where corn, potatoes, vegetables, vineyards, and fruit trees are cultivated. When you go down the fajã you can enjoy your viewpoint, next to the road, from where you can see the fajã itself and the fajã of Caldeira de Santo Cristo, this landscape being one of the icons of the island.
