Geocache Description:


Localizada em plena Serra Devassa, no fundo de uma cratera vulcânica do Maciço das Sete Cidades, a Lagoa de Santiago é uma das mais belas lagoas da ilha de São Miguel.Antigamente, a Lagoa de Santiago apenas se podia observar do miradouro da Lagoa do Canário, não sendo possível avistar-se de mais perto devido aos terrenos contíguos pertencerem a um particular e por se encontrar rodeada por floresta típica da macaronésia e plantações de criptomérias.
A sua cota de altitude em relação ao nível do mar encontra-se nos 334 metros, tendo um comprimento de 700 metros, uma largura de 475 metros por uma profundidade de 29 metros.
O miradouro da Lagoa de Santiago, oferece-nos uma vista panorâmica da lagoa ladeada pela vertiginosa e densa floresta, proporcionando aos visitantes a possibilidade de capturar fotografias de singular beleza.



Located in Serra Devassa, at the bottom of a volcanic crater of the Massif of Sete Cidades, the Lagoa de Santiago (Santiago´s lagoon) is one of the most beautiful lagoons in the island of São Miguel.
Previously, the Lagoa de Santiago could only be watched from the viewpoint of the Lagoa do Canário, because it was not possible sighting is closer due to adjacent land belonging to private property and for being surrounded by macaronesian forest and cryptomeria plantations.
Its altitude relative to sea level lies in the 334 meters, with a length of 700 meters, a width of 475 meters by a depth of 29 meters.
