Pico da Urze


zoom in

Located at 899 metres above sea level, in the centre of Pico Island, this is a true natural viewpoint that presents its visitors with a 360-degree view of almost the whole island.

From here, one can see the Pico Mountain, the Planalto Central (central plateau), the Mistério da Prainha, the Topo Volcano and a tracery of semi-natural pastures with vegetation mosaics that serve as shelter for cattle herding there. One can also see, in the central area of this volcano, its crater which is coated with several species of endemic flora.
