Description

The landscape of Graciosa is of great beauty, combining the green pastures with white houses and isolated villages. The "ex libris" of the island is a large rock formation in front of the lighthouse of Ponta da Barca, with a setting much like a whale seen in profile. It has fertile fields and flattened to produce vegetables, fruit and wine and where it raises cattle, today the main source of wealth of the island.
