Green and blue crater lake
06/2022 The water in the two crater lakes at Sete Cidades is actually supposed to glow green and blue. Unfortunately, it wasn't that easy to see in the cloudy weather. There is a romantic legend about a princess and a shepherd as to why the lakes are colored differently. As always in such stories, it's about a lost love and a forced marriage and many tears (green/blue) that formed a lake.
The view from the Boca do Inferno viewpoint is certainly magnificent and a real highlight in the Azores. You can find out more about Sao Miguel in my travel video, see the link below.
