Yesterday, with beautiful sunny weather, we accomplished a walking tour to the beach called "Praia da Viola" on the north coast of the island of São Miguel. Starting from a village Lomba da Maia, passing the ruins of the old watermills, we were walking down to the coast, where we saw several waterfalls, and soon reached this beautiful beach. After a short break we left Praia da Viola and continued up to another village named "Maia", where we had a picnic in one of the local picnic places, which can be found all around the island. We rounded up the walking tour with a visit to the tobacco factory in Maia. Below are some photos of our full-day walking tour that took place today:
