Rocha da Relva

Even though the overall trail is easy, a narrow footpath dug into the cliff might make you sweat a bit. You will have to descend to get to the Rocha da Relva (Relva Rock), having the Rocha do Cascalho (Gravel Rock) to your right. There are no doubts over where to descend, as there is only one way down to Rocha da Relva. Down there, one of the few detrital fajãs of São Miguel island, for they are more common in São Jorge Island. In this fajã, the microclimate favours the culture of vineyards and the result of that is seen, smelled and tasted in the many wine cellars that exist there. To return to the starting point, follow the same trail.
