Mysterio area, where the last eruption of Pico occurred. Interesting to see how a forestation program with pine trees tend to crumble the lava and turn the rocks into fertile land.

We stopped here to eat our bag lunch at one of the attractive tables in the trees. The surroundings are beautiful. We watched birds, and the deer in their enclosure.

Superbly well maintained park with deer, very clean restrooms, a playground, an exercise course and grills. Just a short walk away is a natural swimming pool well worth checking out also.

This is a very nice, clean, well planned park, worthy of visiting and exploring. It can be easily missed as you drive south on route R1-2 towards Sao Joao from Madalena. Keep on eye out for well groomed grounds on both sides of the road...More
