Serra Devassa

The Lagoa do Canário (Canary Crater Lake) circular trail crosses all the hills of Serra Devassa. Most crater lakes of São Miguel Island are located in this area. Each lake is an immense thrill, and these are their names (that you should know by heart): Canário (Canary), Éguas (Mares), Rasa (Flat), Carvão (Coal) and Pau Pique. The aqueduct known as the Muro das Nove Janelas (Nine Window Wall) stands out in the latter. It was once been used to provide water to Ponta Delgada. It is important to keep in mind that between 750 and 900 metres of altitude, fog may appear without warning, but from February to October it is possible to trick this whim of nature.
