Vista do ReiThe viewpoint of Vista do Rei is the best-known picture postcard of São Miguel and perhaps the Azores.
It owes its name to the visit of King Dom Carlos and Queen Dona Amelia, who from here contemplated the Seven Cities, its lagoons and all the surrounding area.
Getting to enjoy the scenery can be a difficult task. This place is situated on a high point, often covered by fog.
In addition to the attention you should have to the weather, you will know if the place is foggy or foggy through a simple observation in the distance. But it’s not a reason to give up!
The experience in the Seven Cities is not limited to this place. The visit to the parish and the walks along the banks of the lagoons are obligatory destinations.
And if you want to start with another type of experience, get involved with the people of the Seven Cities, the gastronomy and the discovery of their infinite greens.
