Geocache Description:






ENGLISH

What is called “The Caldeira” is actually the central volcano of the island of Faial. The volcano has an estimated age of 410.000 year.  The situation you see today, an almost circular 2000 meter diameter crater, 400 meter deep with its bottom about 570 meter above sea level and a circumference of 8 km is actually the magma chamber of the volcano in which top of the volcano collapsed. The actual volcano, before it collapsed, is said to have had a height of 1500 meter which is now reduced to 1043 meter (Cabeço Gordo).

The rim of the Caldeira provides a spectacular walk which will take you approximately 2 and a half hours.

It is possible to visit the interior of the Caldeira but only allowed with a guide.

 

 

PORTUGUÊS

Aquilo que se denomina “A Caldeira” é, na verdade, o vulcão central da ilha do Faial. O vulcão tem uma idade estimada de 410.000 anos. A situação que você vê hoje, uma cratera quase circular de 2.000 metros de diâmetro, 400 metros de profundidade com seu fundo a cerca de 570 metros acima do nível do mar e uma circunferência de 8 km, é na verdade a câmara magmática do vulcão em que o topo do vulcão entrou em colapso. O vulcão actual, antes de desabar, teria uma altura de 1500 metros, que agora se reduziu a 1043 metros (Cabeço Gordo).

A orla da Caldeira proporciona um passeio espectacular que o levará cerca de 2 horas e meia.

É possível visitar o interior da Caldeira mas só é permitido com guia.
