Introduction

Povoação is an airy town surrounded by seven hills in the south-eastern corner of São Miguel.

12 km southeast of Furnas, the quaint little fishing village of Povoação was the first settlement on São Miguel and is accessible by a mountain road that climbs up in hairpin bends to the mountains before running through forests, past gorges and along valleys. Its restored 15th century chapel of Santa Bárbara is thought to have been the island´s first place of worship.

10 km further east, the Miradouro da Madrugada is a spectacular cliff-top vantage point affording unparalleled views of the morning sunrise.
