FD Fogo Island (Cape Verde)
Written By Admin
This Island is dominated by the presence of a great volcano, symbol of life and energy, 2829 mt. It was first called S. Filipe Island, and later adopted the name of the phenomenon that characterizes it, Fire.
S. Filipe is the capital of Fogo and it’s architecture reflects the social characteristics that have been marking the passage of centuries. The Sobrados are the dominant houses, buildings of colonial influence where lived aristrocrats who dominated the economy and local communities.
The Fogo Island has still the peculiarity of having a place called Chã das Caldeiras, witch is the only place where the population lives inside the crater of an active volcano. In the last eruption in 1995, this village was isolated by the flood of lava that cut the road in three different places. It´s a small place, with a handful of houses, their owners do not move out for anything in the world, loving your style of plain living, hard and basic.
